It is that time of the year…

The busy times got here very early this year, because we have had exeptionally nice and warm weather for weeks. So suddenly some of the wild berries are ready to be picked, and I can’t hesitate. I made this jam today, some wild raspberries mixed with some berries from the garden and sugar. You just stir for a couple of minutes and it is ready.  Here is more on wild raspberries, from a post last year. And a post about cloudberries (multer) and other wild berries in Scandinavia from two years ago. And it might be more later. I love picking berries. There are more photos of berries in my photo gallery.

  1. Ahhhh….Raspberries we call them in Australia. I absolutely love them, but they don’t grow in the wild. They are usually very expensive to buy in the shops. Even when at the peak of their season. You are so lucky to get berries growing in the wild in your area. Blackberries are the only ones in the wild and I suspect even they were brought out to Australia by the early settlers and started spreading and now considered a weed.

  2. That does look delicious. I was just picking some wild blackberries Saturday. Perhaps I’ll post a picture of them. The raspberries in my yard are well past their time here.

  3. We have a few straggly wild berry vines; the soil our landlord used must have had a few old seeds in it. They were delicious …. all 10 or so that I picked from them.🙂 I’d enjoy having as many as your photos show. Your jam looks delicious!!

  6. Dejlige billeder og dejlig årstid, Bente. Jeg stod ‘på hovedet’ i et brombærkrat i går. Kunne næsten ikke komme fri på grund af tornene🙂
    Mange gode hilsner til dig,

  7. Beautiful pictures of gorgeous rasberries !
    In the Alps, it was too rainy this summer and they were not so tasty.
    I seems to be a good idea to mix cooked ones and raw
    I feel jalous😉

    1. I know everything about too much rain, but this year was perfect. But the winter was a bit too cold and too dry (not snow cover all the time), so the there are less blueberries, at least around here. By the way, I don’t mix cooked and raw ones, my jam is only raw, just raspberries and suger crushed together, but I mix the wild ones from nature with some from my garden. Wild ones are smaller, but the taste is so much stronger..
