I admit it, I'm a berryfiend. Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, gooseberries. Blackberries are the only ones that leave me, meh.

Although, marry berryfiend to localsnob and I will pretty much ONLY buy them when they are in season in the U.S. Unless it's raspberries crucial to some dessert. I mean, c'mon, odds are they're going to suck AND they're expensive. You don't ship blueberries from Chile on the slowboat. If I'm funding airfare from Chile, it'll be a seat for me, not my blueberries.

Strawberries hold a special place in my heart, mainly because I spent each spring, bent over (stop it, boys) strawberry rows, picking them for 15-25 cents a quart. And I was good. Jersey Belles and Raritans were mostly what was grown on the farm I worked on. And no, there is no better food than a sun-warmed Raritan, freshpicked.

But that's for later in the season )
