Canadian blueberries star in this tasty, healthy muffin recipe from Mark McEwan. Fresh, wild blueberries pack the most flavour, but you can use frozen and/or farm-grown, too. Just rinse the frozen berries and dry them on paper towels so they don’t turn the muffins greenish-purple. (If you don’t mind the colour, no need to rinse.)
