In Virginia, Montana, we had wild huckleberry and blueberry bushes. I ate them right off the bush, and I managed to stay alive. Walter is more than likely right about not washing if you plan to freeze them.
I am not certain if anyone knows about waxed cherries, but pre packaged here, they cost $4.00 a pound. I used to climb a tree and eat them right off the branch.
Yeah, that's what we always did when we were kids. What's up with this wash business these days, Letty?
I can see if you buy them from markets because of handling and pesticides, but when we're doing the wild thing, I think we are allowed to bypass the washing.
My aunts are all still alive, you're still alive and I'm still tickin
