On our plates: Make your own Pumpkin Spice Latte, where to find nitro coffee, more
Festival season is just starting in Michiana, kicking off with one of the sweetest.
The Marshall County Blueberry Festival is Sept. 4-7 in Plymouth, according to previous Flavor 574 reporting.
Our neighbors in Michigan actually grow the most blueberries in the country, but Indiana still ranks among the top 10, according to the U.S. Highbush Blueberry Council.
Though blueberry picking season has passed, there’ll still be sweet blueberry treats at the festival like blueberry ice cream and ever-popular blueberry doughnuts.
For more details about the festival, see the full story on Flavor 574.
It won’t be much longer until the Pumpkin Spice Latte returns to Starbucks on Sept. 8.

As beloved as the drinks are for the season, it comes at a cost. A 12-oz. is about $4, according to Good Housekeeping. But it’s actually really easy to make at home for a fraction of that cost.
Nitro coffee isn’t like your regular morning cup of Joe.
The drink is made by steeping cold-brew coffee grounds in room temperature or cold water for a few hours and then treating with nitrogen in kegs. It’s poured from a tap, it’s really creamy and very, very strong.
There are a few places to get the drink in Michiana. For a list, see the latest Ask a Foodie from Flavor 574.
