How to Pick Blueberries in Anchorage, Alaska
First of all you should have a bucket or small container. Ask Pete for a blueberry pail. He has several available for his guests. If you plan on picking blueberries for more than 2 hours, you may need two buckets or a gallon ziplock baggy to put your fresh Alaska blueberries.
Use the blueberries you pick in jams, smoothies, on ice cream or with pie.
Some scientists say that a fruit is not fully nutritious until the moment it is ready to fall to the ground as a seed carrier. The complex chemical changes in the plant that turn the fruit into one of the healthiest anti-oxident foods.
If hiking to the top of Flattop is too far for you, hike around "Blueberry Hill" and pick some blueberries instead.
