Haskap season is upon us! A berry similar to the blueberry but packed full of more antioxidants and elongated in shape, these berries were brought from Japan and cultivated in Oregon by 90 year old, Emertis Dr. Maxine Thompson of Oregon State University.
We spent the morning at her test farm helping pick these beauties and glean from her 10+ years of knowledge in these berries! These slightly tart berries are dehydrating to make thier appearance in our
Willamette Berry Pie Tea.
