Located in the “food basket of the world” where you can find an abundance of fruit, nuts and vegetables, our chef at Sunrise of Fresno, CA, took her aunt's peach cobbler recipe and swapped in fresh blueberries. The result was a huge (and delicious) success!

Nutrition Fact: Blueberries contain antioxidants which have been shown to improve vision and brain function, and lower the risk of cancer.
