Picture says it all. The bounty of Oregon. Berries. And these pictured are only four types - strawberries, red raspberries, marionberries and blueberries. We have many others - loganberries, boysenberries, black raspberries, golden raspberries, gooseberries, thimbleberries, salmonberries, tayberries, huckleberries, and more. With berries this perfect, you really don't want to do a lot other than enhance them or give them a canvas upon which to paint their wonderful flavor.

Dang, I wish I were in your kitchen at this moment, but you probably don't because you'd have no berries for your trifle.

Wow, those look good! I haven't even heard of half those berries you listed.
Is the marionberry named after the former D.C. mayor? :)

Gratefully NOT, Sally! Named for the county of origin - Marion County, OR. My friend, Janice, in VA, gets all silly every time I mention them because she associates the name with him. Luckily they have a better reputation. LOL

Angi, I know how you feel. It's not easy but I know I'd regret eating that many berries at one sitting. A very generous co-worker gave me (yes GAVE) a large box of Oregon blueberries today. Apparently her family brokers (is that a verb?) blueberries all over the place. If you go and buy blueberries at Costco--you are probably eating them. The funny part of the story is the Costcos in OR buy their blueberries from Canada. Is that silly or what? :)

Oh berries, I have a sweet spot for them! I have to be careful or I'll bring home pounds of them when I go to our fruitstand on the weekends this time of year!

Same problem, Lion. I've avoided the market most of the season for that reason. Between the gas to get there and the $$ for the produce, I try to go only when I get the baking bug (ok...not always when that happens!) and when the berries are at their peak (ok...maybe when the peaches are too!) and I need/want/can't avoid making a trifle. I'm totally a berry addict.
