Finding and eating wild blueberries on a hike = happiness!
In NY, blueberries grow in the wild! On a recent hike I was lucky enough to happen upon a few bushes that were ripening. Wild blueberries are smaller than the store bought kind, but let me tell you they are sweeter than the store ones have ever dreamed of being!
Some sort of primal instinct kicks in when I see these wild sweets. My palms start to sweat, my brain looses focus, and my arms and fingers reach out to pluck the berries. Nothing better than popping a handful of wild blueberries in your mouth and chewing slowly!
Gives you a burst of energy and a huge guilty smile on your face!
