I guess all the rain earlier in the summer was a blessing in disguise because the island is loaded with all the wild berries right now. It’s usually so dry that low bush blueberries are slim pickings but we’ve been finding them among even more abundant huckleberries. They are both delicious but I’m actually loving the huckleberries a bit more. They are slightly sweeter with a unique taste.
This is my very favorite time of year for ingredients in the Northeast. It’s actually a bit overwhelming with everything coming into season all at once. I’m going to try my hardest to get as many recipes done for this space as I can while the gettin’s good. Hope you too are reveling in August’s bounty! Cheers to beautiful summer harvests!
