Puttering in the garden, pausing at a strawberry bed, raspberry patch, blueberry bush, and nibbling as I go, throughout the season, is about as fine a summer as I can have. I eschew the boat rides, drives up and down dusty roads, picnics in the parks. I know, I am an old lady who likes my creature comforts, in my straw hats, baggy pants, rose-cutting gloves up to my elbows, and a bucket of tools that follows me like a shadow. Paradise!

When it comes to fruit, I pretty much love it all.  There's nothing like a freshly cut, juicy pineapple.  Yes, it's very acidic, so a little goes a long way.......but oh, the taste!  

Thanksgiving dinner just wouldn't be complete without cranberry sauce.  And I agree that cranberry/orange is indeed a fabulous combination for muffins, Sk8eycat.

Not a fan of the fresh picked blueberries either. They just aren't my taste in fruit. Not a fan of the tropical type fruits either with the exception of pineapple occasionally. I just find them far too sweet.

Sounds ''lovely'' Joan!

Joan, can't say I've ever had the pleasure of pickled moose nose. Though, I did eat a pig snout salad once in France. Sliced thin, and if your stacked the meat correctly, you could recreate the nostrils. I actually have to say it pretty good, on top of a bed of greens with a nice vinaigrette, and glass of white wine. I also had horse once. Texture was fine, but the taste was a little too much on the sweet side for me.

Pat, I ate muktuk, uguruk and pickled moose nose in Alaska.

I asked an Athabascan friend if there were any foods of my culture he did not like. He quickly said, "mayonnaise" without any hesitations. He said it tasted awful and felt slimy.

OK! that is about how I would describe his favorite muktuk, uguruk and pickled moose nose. I didn't know at the time of botulism in fermented meat and the incident rate of poisoning of Native peoples.

I like cranberry juice, but whole cranberries, while good at first, a few is enough, and I don't like cranberry sauce.  I don't remember eating them any other way, but I would guess that they would be good in muffins and some other things.

Randall, I agree that store bought strawberries (& at lot of other fruit) are rather tasteless.  Blueberries are almost completely tasteless, although the wild ones have a tiny amount of flavor.

I don't think I've ever had any blueberries except store bought, but I'll bet you're right about the taste of fresh-picked.

I do like Umpqua Blueberry Greek Nonfat Frozen Yogurt.  I suspect their blueberries are closer to fresh-picked.

Store bought blueberries (as well as strawberries) are usually pretty tasteless. Perhaps that's why so many of you don't like them. I don't like them overly ripe either. Otherwise, I could eat them all day. And while I don't often eat pineapple, I like it, too. In fact, I can't think of a fruit I don't like. Maybe gooseberries (and I have a bush!).

Comment by Pat on April 16, 2014 at 5:57am

As long as were on the subjective subject of fruits we don't like, about the only way I'd eat pineapple is if someone put a loaded gun to my head. Blech! And, I've tried it every way. I've even had it fresh cut from a field in Hawaii, sliced, and tried it while it still had its death scream. Still tastes like crap to me. Bitter, acidic, with a sour taste reminiscent of something from the refrigerator that should have been thrown out a week ago.

Cran orange is delicious!!! I also like to eat lemons.
