We spent several very hot, very sticky hours yesterday picking black and red raspberries and strawberries. It was the kind of “fun” that your mother tells you is good for you, you know?
I digress. We picked our own berries because they are local, healthier, tastier, and cheaper than the ones in the grocery store.
If you want to have some “fun” over your own, you can find farms in your own area at PickYourOwn.org. Just don’t forget the sunscreen and bug spray.
In addition to farm listings and picking tips, you can also find detailed, illustrated instructions for how to make your own jam. I have a batch working right now. I’ll let you know how it turns out.
