Wineberries

Wineberries are starting to get ripe here in our area.  They grow wild however we are hoping to get a start of them this fall.

I think they look a lot like red raspberries (maybe they are but folks here call them wineberries).  They have a tart taste.

Julie picking.  We all wore our rubber boots in case we came across any unwanted critters.  Next time we will wear long pants as well.  We took some down to Sam when we went and he dearly loved them.  Daniel would not even try them.  As I have mentioned before, he is not a fruit eater.  Hubby is gone today with his brother down to Grundy.   His Mom has a couple of apple trees that need to be cut.  She was afraid they were going to fall on the power line.  

I plan on working on a few aprons today and maybe going back to pick a few wineberries.  I did make the pickles the other day but I didn’t add the squash.  I had enough cucmbers to do one batch so I just made them using all cucumbers.  I got 8 pts though instead of 6 as the recipe said.  They seem very similar to bread and butter pickles.  I think they will be very good.

Enjoy your day and God bless.

  1. We love those berries! They are the same berries that grow at Claytor on the the trail from the camp grounds to the beach area. I didn’t know what they were called but because of them it takes a very long time to get to the beach 🙂

  4. I haven’t heard of wineberries. I had to look them up. They are the Asian variety of raspberries.

    I would wear rubber boots also. I have come across a couple of snakes just weeding in the corn patch. Thankfully they were baby bull snakes.

    Those are great pictures. Have a great weekend with your family.
