We'd pick fresh blackberries, raspberries & elderberries that grew wild on the farm for our moms to can their own jellies. We'd also ride our bikes to the blueberry farm just down our dirt road to pick for them.
Pomegranates only ripen in warmer climates. They are in season starting in October and are usually available fresh through December. They are a good source of Vitamin C and Vitamin K and Dietary Fiber. My favorite food!
