The new COBS Lemon Blueberry Scone is an amazing addition to their already amazing scone range. It is the perfect blend of wild blueberries, real lemon juice and white chocolate chips, topped with a thin layer of lemon icing.
What difference does using real ingredients make? Well besides tasting better there are some benefits to the ingredients COBS selects, including using wild over cultivated blueberries.
What is the difference between wild and cultivated blueberries?
Unlike cultivated blueberries, wild blueberries are not planted and instead spread primarily by underground runners; this accounts for the variation in size and colour of wild blueberries.
While both cultivated and wild blueberries are good for you the benefits of wild versus cultivated blueberries are:
• Wild blueberries contain more antioxidants per serving.
• Wild blueberries have a more intense, sweet and tangy taste than cultivated blueberries.
• Wild blueberries are naturally smaller and have less water content than cultivated blueberries, which means you get more wild blueberries per pound.
