The Bow Hill Blueberry Burger
This burger shares the local love. In addition to our own dried and pickled blueberries, we wove in four locally-made food products, from the buns to the cheese. No need to go far. The beef and pork is from down the road at the Island Growers Farmers Co-Operative. Skagit Valley’s own makes the best brioche burger bun around at the Breadfarm. Our county’s “largest small” honey producer, Bee Works, provides the balsamic honey redux. With dairies a plenty in the region, Twin Sisters Creamery makes the rich blue cheese to top it all off.
Yield: 6-8 burgers
Prep: 5 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
1 pound ground beef
1 pound ground pork
2 tsp salt
1 cup Bow Hill dried blueberries
1 tbsp Honey Balsamic Redux
Bow Hill pickled blueberries
Thinly sliced red onion soaked in the pickle brine
Mix beef, pork, salt, dried blueberries and redux together. Shape into patties. The pork provides extra fat for grass-fed beef.
When grilling, ensure that the patty temperature moves beyond 150° F. Otherwise, 2 pounds of beef can be used and cooked rare.
Assemble and enjoy!
