|Is there anything sweeter than fresh berries in the summertime? When I think about berries, a few memories come to mind like the summer of 1992. I was living in Ottawa and my mother and I went to a farm and picked bushels and bushels of the most perfect strawberries and then my father and I made a couple of cases of very fragrant strawberry wine. And when I think of blueberries, I remember picking them straight from the woods behind our house in Dartmouth when we lived there in the late 1970s. Although this may sound a little odd, I enjoyed them best with a dollop of sour cream mixed with sugar. Now living in Victoria, we have blackberries growing wild in our neighbourhood and you know when they're ripe because suddenly all of the white cars in town start developing distinctive purple splotches thanks to our bird friends. So in honour of berries of all kinds, here are some spa-style secrets for you to add to your repertoire.|
