This is fresh-picked Bilberry flavor – European blueberries. They are more flavorful, a bit “darker” and “wilder” tasting than cultivated American blueberries – and a little more tart. Bilberry is a very popular flavor in Europe, not to common in the U.S. Real blueberries taste bland and watery when compared to bilberries.
This is a flavor that stands out in recipes. It will overpower weak fruit flavors, but it’s a perfect one to use with other dark fruits and berries, like Black Cherry, Pomegranate, and Blackcurrant.
Use a very light touch (try 0.5% first) in bakery recipes to add blueberry flavor.
Extra tasty with raspberry (many European candies use the two together).
