Foraging and berry picking are savoured summer time activites. I don't have far to go. My garden and surrounding woods provide delectable treats. We planted high bush blueberries about 25 years ago, and they're still yielding plentiful berries. This year there'll be enough to freeze as well.
Below is the kitchen table harvest from today's foraging. Chanterelles and purple lacaria mushrooms. The purple lacaria aren't particularly flavourful, but they add a lovely contrast of soft purple to the saffron chanterelles as they simmer in butter and garlic. Ever mindful of colour!
