traveling trails less traveled: Berries and bears
Although not as important or widespread as it once was, harvesting wild berries for food and fun is still practiced by a few folks. During my formative years picking wild berries, preserving and storing them in our small root cellar was an important part of survival. Lots of yummy stuff was produced from a variety of wild berries, jam, jelly, pies, torte, or canned berries mixed with homemade ice cream, which makes a treat that's to die for!
