Big M Farm

This afternoon, Bridget and I went to the Big M farm near Nenana to pick honeyberries. I was really intrigued last year when they posted numerous pictures of the “long blueberries” as I had never heard of them before. We picked about 4 1/2 lbs. We also picked up some zucchini, kale and collards. Last summer, we missed the most of the berries but did get some yellow and red raspberries plus some candy roaster squash. I’m getting ready to freeze the berries as most recipes say that due to the high water content, freezing is recommended before using them.

Interesting! I've never heard of honeyberries. Are they unique to Alaska?

According to Wikipedia, it is a name applied to a family of plants common in colder climates. So, not unique to Alaska. I had never heard of them until last summer. BeckyM, kept posting pictures of the berries as well as jam, pie, muffins, etc. I couldn’t wait until they were in season this year.
