A stalwart of forest and moorland alike, these tiny berries are our native answer to the better known blueberry. What you get with blueberries, you get tenfold with a bilberry - yes, it's trickier to get hold of them (they are small and wild, after all!) but they are much tastier, juicier and healthier than the watery, shop-bought blueberry.
Enjoy them as you would any berry... by the handful, over yoghurt, in a smoothie or as part of a fruit salad. Just remember that they will stain your fingers a rich purple if handled too firmly!
