Summer Berries

Mmm, tastes like summer, yet doesn't burn your tongue, like that dang sun.

When I was a kid, my neighbour had two long rows of raspberry bushes growing in her backyard. I had an open invitation to wander over and pick as many as I could, because she could not possibly eat them all.

Even though I had an endless supply of raspberries, my favourites were always blueberries, which is why Boo Berry was always my favourite monster cereal.

Oh, the things you can do with blueberries! Pie, in a bowl, and uh, that’s all I can think of.

So last year my friend gave me a raspberry bush which I planted in our backyard. And every day our awesome little bush yields between 4 and 7 super-awesome, ripeified berries.

We bought a little tub of blueberries for the everyday low price of $1.88 and I sprinkled my home-grown raspberries on top and had myself a super-delicious fruit bowl.

It feels good eating something from our own garden. Sadly, my list of awesome things to do with raspberries is even shorter than my blueberry list. Stinkin’ useless raspberries.

Perhaps I should submit a question to the Useless Men on what to do with raspberries.

It's your name isn't it? You're all about the sugary, cakey goodness.

what you could do is take the blueberries and stuff them inside the raspberries for some blueberry-inside-raspberry awesomeness.

also, whipped cream works well with berries.

I usually stick rasberries in my pb&j and go to town. I wish I could grow stuff....I killed a cactus once.

we pay 4.99 for 1/2 C blueberries here!

and yes, they are my favorite, too. the only book i remember checking out of the library in elementary school was one about an elf and sneaking to eat the blueberries out of the pie.

mmmmm

I grew up in New Jersey and I loved the fresh blueberries. Still do love 'em!

I wish I was an Elf who stole blueberries from inside a pie. Holy crap do I ever want pie.
