Did you know that July is National Blueberry month? Yep, it is. So let’s celebrate the BLUETIFUL berries. Blueberry season has been in full swing for about two weeks here on our farm. We grow twenty acres of these beauties.
If you are a blueberry fan, I am sure you get as excited as I do when the season rolls around. Depending on the weather, they usually last for about a month so it’s a much longer season than strawberries. Of course, I am kicking off National Blueberry Month with this easy Blueberry Crisp recipe.
To kick off National Blueberry Month, Douglas Fisher, New Jersey Secretary of Agriculture (far right) and some of our local county representatives, visited our farm market. Hubby Anthony shared a little about our growing process and the Secretary talked about the importance of the Blueberry growers to New Jersey Agriculture. We even got a family photo taken (minus a few family members) ; )
So let’s talk a little bit about this Easy Blueberry Crisp!
What Ingredients Do I Need To Make Blueberry Fruit Crisp?

Tip 1: Since we are in the midst of blueberry season, make sure you grab a few pints of delicious blueberries at your local farm market or grocery store. BUT…..this recipe can definitely be made all year long by using frozen blueberries.
Tip 2: If your blueberries are on the sweeter side, you can always cut back on the sugar. Adjust the sweetness level by adding more or less sugar depending on your sweet preference.
Tip 3: Serve with your favorite ice cream. I am partial to vanilla. But hey, I would never judge!
