Honeyberries are quickly moving up the berry food chain as the up-and-coming super fruit! Not only are they great for baking, jam-making, and snack-taking, the numerous health benefits of honeyberries make them a nutritional powerhouse.
Honeyberries are packed with antioxidants, and outpace blueberries, mulberries, and blackberries with the highest level of anthocyanins which are linked to eye health, anti-inflammatory properties, cardiovascular benefits, and fight against colon cancer. Besides antioxidants, honeyberries are a significant source of calcium, phosphorous, potassium, and iron, and have twice the Vitamin A, and four times Vitamin C than blueberries!
Honeyberries are sour-sweet to the tastebuds, often compared in flavor to an underripe blueberry, raspberry or blackberry. Since the tender skins of honeyberries "disintegrate" when eaten, they make a great addition to yogurt, ice cream, and smoothies, and are also excellent for making jams, jellies, and fruit wine.
