Wild Black Raspberry Picking

The past couple weeks I've been harvesting a lot of raspberries from the canes we planted in our yard. It got me to thinking about wild raspberry patches I've seen on some of our walks. We decided to go check it out.

As you can see we lucked out! I'd brought a pint carton along and had no trouble filling it up. The kids were so excited to help us find them along the trail. Repeatedly their little faces would light up each time they found more.

It was a bit hot and buggy, so I paid for these babies in sweat and blood (mosquitoes). Once we got home and had a taste though, it was worth it! We polished off half of the container and the rest we plan to use for muffins or pancakes tomorrow.

Yummy wild berry treat and recipe soon to follow.

  1. I can't wait to see what you do with fruit. As a child I loved picking wild raspberries that grew across the street from my home...such a happy little find.
    I am very glad to have found your blog as a burgeoning vegan I can use all the hints and tips I can find.
