We’ve been thinking about getting some perennial food sources started, i.e. berry bushes. Since I am an absurdly picky eater, we thought we’d better do a taste test. (The shortbread is just because Handsome can’t resist temptation…..)
The blue berries are frozen aronia berries and the red ones are dried Goji berries.
Happily the shortbread came in handy to overcome the flavor of the aronia berries. When Robert ate one, he paused and asked, “How do we know this isn’t monkey poo?”
The goji berries weren't too bad. They were much sweeter, and there's almost a hint of a maple flavor. I've been adding two to my raisons in my oatmeal each morning. It think we might try a Goji berry bush.
