Dewberry Time, 2020

We had tons of dewberries in 2018. We froze enough to make jam, which I’ve still not done. Luckily Kathleen knows how.

Dewberries are our native berry.

Last year, there weren’t any. I guess it’s cyclical. This is another good year, though. Kathleen and I picked enough for a cobbler last week. This week I picked a lot!

Just some of my haul.

My faithful companion, Vlassic, tried to help out, but the plants were way taller than him. I saw one mouse and one small snake, which isn’t bad, considering how deep in the wild area I went.

I can’t see any berries, Mom.

So, today is dewberry day. I first made dewberry walnut bread. It didn’t rise much.

Fresh berry bread.

However, it’s quite tasty, and Lee and Chris have already finished one loaf. That’s a good sign.

They ate it!

Next, while Kathleen rearranged the pantries, I made a pound cake for Chris’s birthday cake. That used up lots of our eggs, which is good. Nice eggs from Ginger and Berta Lee!

This should be good

To go with the cake, I made a dewberry sauce. Mmm. I tasted it. It’s quite bright!

It looks better in jars.

The rest will be jelly or jam. Kathleen has the equipment. That’s for later in the week. We still have two huge bags!

What could be better than sugar and berries?
The finished product, pound cake with dewberry sauce. It was good with ice cream!
