back, but busy
We've been back east for two weeks now and between playing catch-up w/clients and taking on some new work, I'm barely keeping my head above water. Never mind the overwhelming abundance of wild foods this time of year...
What was I thinking, leaving the NE in the first full flush of foraging season?! I won't make that mistake again. I was afraid I'd missed two of my favorite harvests: Amelanchier berries and elderflowers, but no! First day back at work I was met with a bumper crop of Juneberries (aka Amelanchier fruit aka Serviceberries) just waiting to be appreciated. Which, of course, I did.
Here's how I foraged for Amelanchier in the middle of NYC; it's a specialized kind of urban gathering. And props to Sara for sharing her Brooklyn kitchen, culinary inspiration, and delectable Serviceberry Sorbet.
