In the future, we hope to plant blueberry bushes and raspberry canes, until then we have to find them elsewhere. Lucky for us, Sweet Season Farm is located just a few miles down the road and has pick-your-own raspberry and blueberries.
Yesterday morning we loaded up and headed down there to pick. Our neighbor and her mother-in-law were also in our party.
Mr Chiots and I didn’t end up getting any blueberries, we plan on heading back for those later this week. I might freeze just a few, or we might eat them all fresh. Last night I was thinking about making a batch of Nourishing Custard with fresh raspberries. Or I might pull out a few of my cookbooks for inspiration. I love fresh berries in season!
Do you grow any berries in your garden? If you had a glut of red and black raspberries what would you make with them?Filed under Going Local | Comments (16)
