Picking Blueberries and Currants at My Farm

It's berry season and here at my Bedford, New York farm, all available hands are busy picking delicious summer berries.

Last week, we picked black currants - those juicy, tangy fruits that grow on thornless understory shrubs. I use them to make jams, jellies, and tarts. They also make wonderful sorbets and they're easy to freeze for later use. And, we picked boxes of blueberries - everyone loves eating blueberries fresh off the stem. Low in fat, yet packed with vitamin-C and antioxidants, it’s not surprising they’re one of America’s favorite fruits to eat.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
