Wild blueberries are Maine’s official state berry – and August is the month to put them in everything!
Ogunquit, Maine (PRWEB) August 09, 2012
Blueberries are one of nature’s most delicious super foods. Wild blueberries are Maine’s official state berry – and August is the month to put them in everything from savory sauces to ice-cold smoothies.
The Cliff House Resort & Spa on Maine’s south coast uses blueberries as an ingredient everywhere from its cliff-top dining room (halibut with blueberry beurre blanc is a favorite) to recipes that are easy to whip up at home.
The Resort’s Chilled Maine Blueberry Champagne Bisque, for example, is a breeze to make. It’s a heady blend of blueberries, champagne and chardonnay with a dash of nutmeg and honey. The perfect cooler for steamy summer nights and partying poolside.
Blueberries are also a signature ingredient in the Resort’s world-class spa. Specialties include a soothing Blueberry Body Wrap and Cliff House Signature Manicure & Pedicure with moisturizing Blueberry Smoothie Mask.
Every August Maine towns celebrate with blueberry festivals, pie eating contests and blueberry pancake breakfasts. The Cliff House, which opened in 1872, is also celebrating. This summer it’s toasting its 140th Anniversary with a Blueberry Bellini and other specials.
