It's black raspberry season here! I love all berries, but black raspberries have always been my favorite flavor. The land around our house is full of them, and I've picked two and a half gallons so far. Let me tell you my secret: find the densest poison ivy, swarming with the hungriest mosquitoes, put on long-sleeves, fingerless gloves, and a bug net. Otherwise, you'll be paying a painful price for the berries. I've made some jam but it's time to make more.
