Yes, the wild type are smaller, but I think they have better flavor. Same with strawberries.

I have had that same problem. My dtr always teases me about saving everything. I always cook too much it seems and hate to throw anything away. So it goes to waist! But since I have started SP again, I notice there are not so many leftovers. And since I make a month's menus and put days for leftovers on it, I am now having to change my menus...Hmmmm, that could cause a problem. Now I have to think up new ones. But I am gradually getting everyone else to eat better. We have four kids (and one I am in the process of adopting coming soon) in the house and trying to please all of their pickiness ways is just too much. Now that I am eating better, they have to or else fix a sandwich for dinner. I am determined and will not give up.

Hi, Cathy and welcome. I'm also new to this group.

MARTIET, I love berry pies - as a teenager down in MD, I used to make blueberry pies with wild ones growing in our back yard. The berries were smaller, but really juicy and delicious!

LOL! That's all it takes sometimes! We have that problem here, too. The going-to-waist so it won't go-to-waste problem. I never heard of those berries, either, but we are doing blueberries right now. I love berries, too, but can't eat blackberries because of the seeds. Sometimes raspberries are ok, and sometimes not. We had a church picnic the other day, and somebody brought the most amazing mixed-berry pie! Wonderful flavor, but I had to give it to hubby, because of the blackberry seeds. Still, I got a taste!

Saskatoon berries are like blueberries, a bit smaller and very flavour-full! They grow very abundantly here in Saskatchewan and many people say that they like them better than any other berry... personally I love all berries, I can't pick a favorite! The challenge is letting as few as possible of these little treasures "go to waste", so they end up "going to MY waist"!

I think my favorite thing to bake right now is zucchini bread. A friend of ours has a garden and her zucchini are so big! I have NEVER seen them this size. I have been baking bread all summer for everyone. I even made about 4 loaves and 4 dz muffins for a church function. They are so good even my 9 yr old grandson that hates veggies loves them. And they are low fat and healthy for you. So no guilt. I say right now because my tastes change along with my mood and I bake whatever comes to mind that I feel like having. I have had quiche on my mind for the past couple of days. I'll probably make one this weekend or Monday. I'm making myself hungry!

I am Cathy and I live in south Louisiana. Food is a way of life here and I love to cook. My favorites are any thing to bake. From jello cake to quiche to crab cakes. I have five grandkids-two girls and three boys. Live with them and my older dtr and her hubby. Hope to share recipes and ideas and tips and this journey to healthier bodies.
