They may be ranked as one of the most antioxidant-rich foods on the planet, but most of us love blueberries for the lush color and flavor they add to both sweet and savory dishes. Try them in sauces, baked goods, salads, and more to add the freshness of the season to almost any dish on your table.

“Is my grocery store ripping me off? My pints of blueberries don’t weight 16 ounces!”

A dry pint is not a measurement of weight—it is volume, as in cubic inches. (A liquid pint, as in a pint of cream, gives you fluid ounces). A pint of feathers takes up the same amount of space as a dry pint of marbles, but they certainly don’t weight the same!

One pint of blueberries should fill 2 dry cup measures—and should come right to the top of the pint container in which they are sold. Chances are, your pint will weigh about 12 ounces…give or take a little.
