In an ideal world, one would grow all the fruits and vegetables that one could possibly need for canning, jamming, fermenting and freezing on their very own homestead. Organically, of course. But this is the real world.
Blueberries are one of my favorite summer fruits. When I was a little girl, family vacations were spent on the shores of Lake Superior hunting blueberries for pancakes. These small, wild blues packed a lot of flavor. Could it really have been 15 years ago that I last went picking?
Mmmm, homemade ice cream. I remember the first time I tried it - I used raw milk, sugar, and vanilla. It was heavenly. More like iced milk than iced cream, but tasty all the same.
