Pickled Blueberries sounded really weird to me, but I tried them at the farmers market. They are a little sweet, with warming spices and just enough vinegar. The sweetness is so delicious with salmon. If you like salmon with the apple / onion / soy treatment, I recommend trying this recipe for a refreshing change.

My first thought was pickled blueberries. <br />Second thought time to expand your horizons. Boy was I pleased I tried this recipe. The blueberry flavor not only enhances the salmon it elevates it. All I can say is make the leap try this you won’t regret it.

A new way to make salmon. Yay! Instead of grilling, I pan seared my salmon then just added the pickled blueberries, marinated red onion and creme fraiche. My in-laws loved it!

This recipe is incredibly delicious. It pulls together quickly and with ease. The result is a colorful and tasty combination. I've also used Bow Hill Blueberries on cheese boards, in salads, as a cocktail garnish, and with chicken, beef, and pork. YUM!
