About National Blueberry Muffins Day
When is National Blueberry Muffins Day? This holiday is always celebrated on July 11
Today is National Blueberry Muffins Day, a July 11 holiday. Now here is a special day you can sink your teeth into. Blueberry Muffins are one of America’s favorite muffins. And, the blueberry harvest is occurring right now!
European settlers brought with them a recipe for “Bilberry Muffins”. Bilberries were not to be found in the New World. Wild blueberries, native to the Americas, were both plentiful and delicious. The wild blueberries were substituted for Bilberries, and the Blueberry Muffin recipe was born.
Did You Know? Native Americans called blueberries “star berries”.
In addition to tasting delicious, blueberries are very healthy for you. They are one of the best foods you can eat. Blueberries can help fight or avoid many ailments, including cancer, and dementia, promote heart health, and much, much more.
BTW: Three of the past four days have a special day with something to do with blueberries. Yet, the creator is not known in any of them. Perhaps, one blueberry-loving person created all three days!?
Have a happy and healthy National Blueberry Muffin Day!
