True blue of na­tive berries

Landscape (UK) - - Contents -

I en­joyed the blue­berry recipes in the May/June 2017 is­sue of Land­Scape, but I think peo­ple are be­gin­ning to think blue­ber­ries are na­tive to Eng­land. We have our own here, the bil­berry, also known as whortle­berry or blae­berry, which grows on moors and in woods in Scot­land. You can also grow them at home. They are not tart, but I find a lit­tle lemon juice helps. Cather­ine Kop­pana, Ne­wark Land­Scape says: Our na­tive bil­ber­ries were fea­tured in the July/Au­gust 2014 is­sue - and we agree they are lovely.
