I love raspberries and blackberries. Our Minnesota seasonal schedule will not provide the plump explosions of flavor until much later this summer. In our spiffy modern “lets ship food from around the world” sorta way, the blackberries are arriving in the grocery stores now and are looking and tasting really good.
The cold reality of my life is that we had frost again this morning. Although the afternoon warmed to a blistering hot 64 degrees. Sometimes it feels like we are trapped in lukewarm hell. But! I threw a few of those big, shiny, blackberries in with my yogurt and savored the moment. Blackberries are summer on a spoon, and it was the best part of my day.
