Colorado Berries

As a native Pacific Northwest dweller I long for the sweet taste of berries every summer.  There are a glut of berries in the mountains, on roadsides and on farms in Washington.  I feel like I am never quite satisfied in Colorado….until these raspberries.  Finally a berry with flavor.  And the blackberries are pretty great, too.  Enjoy these Colorado treasures on cereal, icecream or one by one or in a big handful all alone.

The berries would also be great in little individual cobblers.

Here’s a yummy peach and raspberry cobbler from a Colorado bed and breakfast:

Broccoli

It is a bountiful broccoli crop this year.  It is exciting to see how there are some vegerables that are perfectly suited to our high altitude short season growing.  The broccoli remains sweet and tender all season long and holds well in the field.  Here are a couple simple recipes from one of my favorite recipe sites.  This is also a great site to search an ingredient for great recipes.
