So spend your time being happy. These were the only thoughts crossing my mind as I was picking raspberries in a field 30 minutes from my home, at $4/pint. Sure, I could’ve driven to Trader Joe’s (which I love), but where would the fun be? As I was picking the berries, I could only think of all the fun things to do with them! Before the night was over, I had already made Raspberry Coulis and a Raspberry-Red Wine Sauce [alcohol-free, of course]. After I obtain some pears, I plan to make all sorts of other jams and process them (in a canner). Yes, it takes more time than going to the store, but where would the fun be?
