I am all about natural local ingredients. If you’ve followed my blog long enough, you would have known that already. This season’s fruits range from luscious strawberries that are almost out of season now, to mulberries that are starting to ripen now, watermelons, cherries, and so many stone fruits that overflow in produce shops. I’m trying to make use of all the fruits I can get my hands on, but sometimes there isn’t enough time.
I have always dreamt of getting blueberries, raspberries, and cranberries. All these berries that I see in recipes from international bloggers. But I am always bummed whenever I pass by the produce isle in the supermarket and find the box of sad, almost raisin-like blueberries sitting in a clear plastic tray waiting for their final destination at the dumpster because no one would buy a 50 gram box for 7 dollars. Luckily, I found a local producer who has started growing his own berries and presenting them to the Lebanese market.
