I just realized this last week when I was at the Milwaukie Farmers' Market...There were fewer people, I was wearing a long sleeve shirt, and there weren't as many fresh berries! I had a minor internal spaz attack...
"WHAT AM I GOING TO DO FOR SMOOTHIES? HOW WILL I GET MY FRUITY-TUTY DELICIOUS SUGAR FIXES?!?!?! I DON'T WANT BERRIES FROM SOUTH AMERICA OR WHEREVER THE FUCK WINTER TIME FRUITS COME FROM. HELP. HELP. HELP!!! WHO CAN SOLVE THIS!?!?!"
|Side-by-sides are dumb|
I covered my stackable cooling racks with foil and layered the berries. I let them sit overnight and put them in zip-top bags. When I was done, I only had about 4 bags of berries. Considering I can eat half a flat in a week by myself, I decided I would definitely need more.
I also got some peaches and nectarines. I will blanch them to remove the peels and then slice them for freezing as well. Anyway...I just thought you should know. If you invite me over for a delicious meal in the middle of December I may just make a tasty berry cobbler to share.
