Blue is a super rare color in nature. It’s one of the reasons indigo is so magical.
Blue food is even more rare. The ideas about why vary a lot. Some, like blueberries and potatoes, actually trend more towards a purple-ish color rather than a strong blue color. There are artificially-colored blue foods, of course, but I’m still on the hunt for something natural.
I was super excited to see that Fisher King Winery in Mt. Horeb was doing a tasting last weekend of it’s first batch of Blueberry wine. They were offering a summer sangria–a mix of the wine with fruit and lemon-flavored vodka. While nice, the sangria didn’t have the same bright blue color of the wine itself. I sampled the wine on it’s own and was surprised by the lovely fresh taste. It is a semi-sweet so I will have to have Jennifer try it out before I commit to bringing some to the Deep Into Indigo Retreat, but we will be doing a tasting today!
Anyone had it?
