Berries, Berries & more Berries

July 11th, 2008

While out for a stroll the other morning, I spotted a wild black raspberry bush at the edge of the woods in the back of our lot. There’s nothing better than sun-ripened berries.

I picked a handful of them, then I spotted another bush. There’s something supremely satisfying about finding a berry patch in the woods, I suppose it calls back to our roots as hunter gatherers.

The next day, Mr. Chiots and I walked along the roads by our home and found many more bushes (they don’t spray the ditches around here so they’re safe from herbicides & pesticides). We ended up with 2 1/2 lbs of wild black raspberries, and I’m sure we’ll be out to pick again before they’re all gone.

They’re all tucked away in the freezer waiting to brighten up our winter breakfasts. MMM, I can almost taste the muffins or jelly now.
