The forest is FULL of wild raspberries. I spent an hour or so this morning picking them and a few blueberries as well. I think I prefer picking raspberries: it's not so back breaking and the smell is really wonderful.
I'm sure the bees, as well as the warm, sunny weather, explain why we have so many raspberries this year. We've never had such quantities before.
The taste is close to cultivated varieties but they tend to be slightly smaller. I find the pips are more palatable than the ones in the huge berries you get in the garden.
I think we will be picking raspberries for another week or so.
I have made juice using a Finnish "mehumaija". It's an easy way of juicing as no messy filters are needed. Not sure how much vitamin C is left after the fruits have been steamed though!
Finnish "Mehu" is probably better than squash or soda but not as yummy or as healthy as a nice smoothie.
