Specialty Berry Madness Continues at Farmers' Markets, Courtesy of Pinnacle Farms
|Ever been helped at a market stall by someone who isn't sweet and adorable? Me neither.|
Whether you need to serve something red, white, and blue this weekend or you just want to nom a decadent-but-natural touch of healthful Northwestern bounty as your shoes start to sink into the Valley's asphalt, grab these amazing fruits while they last.
Each berry pack contains 6 to 7 ounces by weight, depending on variety, and although they look very compact to the eye, each measures about a dry pint in volume (the usual old-fashioned berry standard).
You don't need to do much to these berries. Top some good vanilla ice cream with 'em and prepare to swoon, or serve with a mild white cheese and some sparkling wine, and you'll be both patriotic and popular. Me, I plan to throw the rest of mine into a simple muffin recipe and freeze the results for Father's Day.
