Yesterday on a walk I noticed how many berries are ripe right now. Granted, there are not very many of them, and they are usually smaller than cultivated varieties; if you had to live off them it would be a quick weight loss plan; you would soon appreciate why wild game is desirable. Think of them more as a tasting menu.
Then there are chokecherries. They are quite juicy, but also contain a large amount of tannin, so the pucker factor is high. There are more of these than any other berry, since they are tree fruits. All the others are small bush fruits.
And last, but not least: gooseberries. There is quite a large number of wild bushes up back. Where I am from there were none. But we had tens of vary-colored wild cherry trees. No wild cherries here. These gooseberries are quite sweet, but beware the spines!
