A Norilsk woman told how to distinguish blueberries from huckleberries.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. This year, an incredibly warm summer in the Arctic helped the berries to arrive earlier than usual. Norilsk residents have already managed to harvest cloudberries, now blueberries have ripened in the tundra.

The bright blue berries stand out against the green tundra and are typically found near swampy areas or along rivers, streams and lakes.

“Here comes the blueberry time. Did you know that its berries contain antioxidants that slow down the skin aging process? A handful of blueberries can replace five apples or broccoli”, Norilsk resident Nadezhda Dokumentova shared on social networks.

According to her, blueberries are often confused with huckleberries. To distinguish these seemingly similar berries, you need to look at the branches: in huckleberries they are green and flexible, while in blueberries they are lignified, brown.

Fresh berries are tender and tasty, but in order for blueberries to give their beneficial properties all year round, they should be properly preserved. For example, fresh berries can be frozen, candied, dried, or made into jam.
