Foodie Friday – Haskaps

Since I have owned a house I have really enjoyed gardening. Each year I plant the staples (lettuce, carrots, onions, garlic, tomatoes, and potatoes) as well as some “fingers crossed” veggies. A couple of years ago we attended a great presentation by well-known gardening guru Donna Balzer. We learned that there is a plant that produces these great berries called Haskaps. They are blueberries that are meant for our Northern climate as I believe they originated in Siberia.

In our front flower bed we planted three of the haskap plants and this year was our best yield to date. They taste a bit like a blueberry. I hopefully will get enough to make a pie or something neat with them next year, but for now a good bowl-full was a great treat.
