6 or 7 fresh picked Mint leaves
Local Organic Honey

Wash blueberries and dry them- put in a bowl
Stack and fold mint leaves- chiffonade them( fancy for cutting them in thin strips)
Sprinkle mint leaves over berries
Drizzle honey ( to taste) over berries and mint

Living in New Jersey for practically my entire life, we always had amazing fruits and veggies grown locally. Blueberries were always at the top of my list. Buy fresh and local and you can’t go wrong.
