Blueberries are Good for You Blueberries are an attractive
looking, easy to eat, fruit, no messy peeling or pips to
extract just pop them in your mouth and experience their
subtle flavour. Very refreshing! They always taste like
more. That's not all; extensive research in American Universities
has confirmed that they definitely are good for you. Enhancing
vision, reducing eyestrain, lowering cholesterol, helping
to prevent cancer and slowing down the aging process.
They are good too in a whole host of recipes,
not just the Blueberry pie and Blueberry muffins dearly
loved by our friends all over America. Food experts like
Mike Smith from the Kildare Kitchen shows just how versatile
they are by including Blueberries in his range of delicious
food products at his irresistible shop in Johnstown The
blueberry season is in full swing during the month of August
and pickers for Larkwood Products Ltd. are busy bringing
in an excellent crop of very high quality berries at their
new plantation at Ballyteague.
These berries are grown on a twenty-acre
bogland site that demonstrates the value of what was once
considered waste ground. The plantation has been established
on bog that was previously cutover for turf extraction.
The ground has been prepared and planted over the last four
years as a community venture managed by Larkwood Products
Ltd. and sponsored by the Allenwood Community Development
Association based at the Allenwood Enterprise Park. The
project aims to find alternative use for Kildare's peatlands
and has been strongly encouraged, supported and funded by
KELT the Kildare Leader Company.
