Berry Good Giveaway Hop

Welcome to the Berry Good Giveaway Hop, hosted by Mama the Fox!

Berries, fresh berries, still feel like the taste of summer, don’t they? Not just the freshness, but the juiciness and the sweetness and the stickiness running down your chin when you bite into a really good one. Or any fresh fruit, honestly. They just taste wonderful and sweet and summery – no matter when you get them.

Because I just read a book about going to summer camp, I can’t help but think of the camp I went to – Camp Ross Trails near Cincinnati, which has been closed for decades and replaced by a subdivision! There were a lot of either blackberry or black raspberry bushes (I think black raspberry) growing all along the trails and roads, and if you happened to go at just the right part of the summer (there were 5-ish two-week sessions each summer) you could pick the ripe berries as you walked along to meals and activities.

Those berries were delicious. Possibly even more delicious in memory than in real life – isn’t that always the way – but they were wonderful.

These days, most of my berries are definitely blackberries – and from the grocery story. They may not taste quite as good as those long ago berries, but they are available fresh all year round. So every morning – even in the dead of winter – I get a little taste of summer sweetness in my morning.

  1. My favorite type of berry is wild blueberry. I love eating them with Greek yogurt, liquid stevia, and sliced almonds.

  2. Strawberry shortcake, made by my Nana, with homemade biscuits and fresh whipped cream. A lifetime favorite. Thanks for the memory.

  3. I love strawberries sprinkled with sugar. Even better if they are on an Angel Food Cake with cool whip on top!

  4. Korean strawberries are my favorites because they are very sweet and freshest during my birthday month. I like to eat them plain or on top of a cake.

  5. I love cherries and strawberries! I eat most of my fruit frozen because its cheaper and lasts longer.

  6. I love eating blueberries that we grow ourselves either by themselves or made into a dessert!

  7. I don’t like any type of berries. I know I am a weirdo, but I just can’t stand berries.

  8. The only berries I like are cherries (are they considered berries?). I love cherry pie. I enjoy the flavor of strawberries and raspberries but I can’t stand the texture – I think it’s the seeds I don’t like.

  9. I like raspberries for flavoring stuff like cheesecake or milkshakes but if I am just eating plain berries then strawberries are my favorite.

  10. I love blackberries, and I love them in my favorite Starbucks drink, the Very Berry Hibiscus drink 🙂

  11. Strawberries are my favorite. I love them simply macerated. Then I eat them with a little cream poured over them on top of homemade shortbread.

  12. What’s your favorite kind of berries? And how do you like them best?
