Yesterday a few friends and I went south, to Kingsburg, to The Berry Lady packing shed to get blackberries and blueberries that had just been picked from the vines and bushes surrounding the big barn.
This morning, I turned these
into three bottles of blackberry syrup.
My next project is to bake a batch of lemon cupcakes with which to serve the syrup and more fresh berries. May is certainly ending on a high note.
