Are those the frozen type but former wild blueberries? For the past two years I picked lots of blueberries not too far from Fairbanks, which my wife turns into low-sugar and delicious blueberry pies. Talking about "yum, yum!"

Actually these are Oregon blueberries that Dad picked and froze last summer.

Last summer, I had basically no time for gathering berries or anything else besides salmon and it seemed that the berry season came and went more quickly than usual.

I make my blueberry/blackberry pies with a crumb crust and I put a sour cream/sugar mixture on before baking---going to be making several of these soon for friends around town.

I'm not so hot on the flavored teas or coffe for that matter. But you're so right about the loose leaf. Whats bagged is basically junk left over from loose leaf production....
Than again, if I were offered flavored tea by pretty goddess, I might have taken to liking it too But my girl likes her coffee brewed straight in the cup and so do I... tea the same way, maybe with some rum in it

It's yum but I'd prefer it with king salmon instead of tuna.

Pasta w/king salmon, some fresh dill tossed in hemp oil is beyond yum.
