We are just about past the prime of the berries but all in all this little 15 ish foot patch gave us about 3 plus gallons of berries. We shared with family and filled our bellies. Today I attempted to make a dessert that was refined sugar free to take to my sister in law's b-day party down by the river this afternoon. I am not sure if it is a Pinterest fail or not yet. I just about burnt up the motor on the food processor this morning chopping up the almonds! I will let you know the verdict after we sample them! (Note I did cut back half the dates and replaced maple syrup with a teaspoon of agave)
So cheers to sunny afternoons, heading to the river, and growing a little patch of food in your own yard!
