Today, I made a large blueberry pie to be eaten with custard. These are not farmed highbush blueberries but wild blueberries / bilberries. We have lots if woods over here and people pick their own berries. How is it in your countries? There are wild bilberries, strawberries, raspberries, lingonberries and cloudberries, the latter mostly in the North. I find farmed blueberries much milder and lacking in taste compared with bilberries.
They say Finnish berries get their uniquely intense flavour from the long summer days when the sun never goes down.
We usually go to a pick-your-own for strawberries and raspberries and make jam. You just cannot buy anything equal to self-made jam in the shops! When you open the jar it takes you back to a beautiful summer's day and raspberries hanging like jewels in the bushes.
I'm curious, what do you do for berries in your country? Do you pick wild ones or buy farmed ones?
