Pickled Blueberries


I know what you’re thinking… Pickled Blueberries?! I thought the same thing when I heard about them, but trust me, this is one recipe you do not want to rule out before trying.  They can elevate the flavors in so many dishes, it’s unbelievable!

If you’ve been following along with me here and on Instagram, you know that this summer I’m obsessed with pickling. Nothing in the kitchen is safe. It all started with my Pickled Red Onions recipe. No burger or tuna salad is the same without them now.

Naturally, when I saw pickled blueberry recipes floating around Pinterest, I thought to myself, “I must try making these!”  Boy am I happy I did!

Immediately, upon tasting my Pickled Blueberries, I thought of my Grilled Corn Salad. I felt strongly that the sweetness of the grilled corn combined with the juicy and acidic pickled blueberries would be a summer match made in heaven and they were just that!

I can’t wait to try Pickled Blueberries on many other dishes like a garden salad with grilled shrimp or chicken.

Have fun experimenting with your Pickled Blueberries! If you come up with some great combinations, please be sure to share them with me. I love hearing from y’all!
