BT Calgary | posted Tuesday, Jul 19th, 2016

2016 BC blueberry season is set to kick off mid-June, hitting Alberta shelves shortly after that.  The 2015 season saw 77 million pounds of berries harvested and we think 2016 will be a similar result..

  7. Once you have rolled half way, fold in the sides and finish rolling.
  8. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.
  9. Cut in half and serve with blueberry peanut dipping sauce.
  10. To make sauce, add all ingredients to a blender, and blend until smooth.
