Suburban foraging

Having spent some of the weekend blackberry picking, Tightwad has been thinking about all of the fresh goodies that are available to us during the year - for free! Crab apples, raspberries, blackberries, sea asparagus, dandelion greens, fiddleheads, wild fennel; getting outside and finding food is a great way to spend an afternoon with your kids. File this under: "teachable moments". We made blackberry smoothies, put them in a salad with toasted almonds and feta, and used them in a compote for French toast. There's no blackberries left at our house, but we're gearing up for another picking session next weekend. Next up: pie!
