WHO: Angela Brown is a freelance food and lifestyle writer, and the co-owner of Mayhem & Stout sandwich shop in NYC.
WHAT: A makeover for your not-so-hot blueberries.
HOW: Make a brine by boiling together vinegar, sugar, salt, peppercorns, and rosemary. Pour this mixture into a jar filled with blueberries, then start brainstorming creative ways to use these tart, savory treats.
WHY WE LOVE IT: If you think of blueberries as one-dimensional, this recipe will change that. With the help of a sour brine, droopy blueberries morph into tangy, herbal flavor bombs that will make your jams, pies, and shrubs extraordinary.
