Welcome to this week’s Sunday Supper adventure! I say adventure because our theme this week is On the Hunt. To me that means foraging. In this case for raspberries for Raspberry Muffins!
I’ve told this story a few times, so if you heard it before bear with me. As a kid I loved nothing better than foraging for snacks. Hot spots for snacks depended on the season. Fall brought apples and pears from neighboring trees. Spring had violets and dandelion. But summer, oh summer was always ripe for the picking! All you needed was to know what was safe and where to find it! Apricots and sweet bing cherries came from an old farm that was for sale for as many years as I could remember. Some wild finds included mulberries, honeysuckle nectar, pawpaw and watercress.
But my favorite was and always will be raspberries.
Wild red raspberries are considered an invasive species here in PA. Their growth habit tends to take over an area. If you plant or nuture a wild patch, you can easily control them by thinning and pruning. I had them growing for years along my fence. I included an old picture below.
If you are lucky enough to find raspberries in the wild, remember 2 things. First, the vines are covered in thorns. Second, where raspberries grow, you are bound to find poison ivy. Both plants thrive in the exact same conditions.
Don’t let that discourage you. Anyone that practices foraging will tell you that you just need to be careful of your surroundings! 😉
A good field guide is great place to start.
