Berry Picking

We headed out to Adam’s Farm in Fayetteville this past weekend for berry picking.  It was a short drive from the city.

The strawberries were past season, but there were still a few raspberries and lots of blueberries and blackberries.
The raspberries were prickly, so I only came home with a handful.
 The blueberries and blackberries were plentiful and much more fun to pick.
(Blackberries grow red and then turn black when they’re ripe.  I didn’t know that until yesterday!)

It was a HOT Saturday morning, but we had a great time!  I love my friends!
Plus, there’s a market at the farm.
I came home with some loot!
I used America’s Test Kitchen’s recipe to make blueberry muffins (made with yogurt), and they are amazing!
Next year, we will have to go earlier to get strawberries too!

  1. Those muffins look amazing! Are you subscribed to America’s Test Kitchen or did you just find the recipe?

    • I have their cookbook! It’s a really good cookbook- they’ve taken all these different recipes and tested to see which one is best for that dish. However, sometimes I don’t do it because they call for too many ingredients and I’m too cheap!
