This past weekend, we made the trip back to Swanton Berry Farm in Davenport to pick olallieberries. We went a little wild, picking over 12 pounds (and at $4 a lb!), and it was quite a task to dispatch all those berries before they went bad.
I made a batch of jam, ice cream
(with raw eggs, so I'm the only one eating it), and a special batch of jelly for my husband. Eight more cups of crushed berries are in the freezer, with plans for a second batch of jam and olallieberry sorbet

Of all the ways to consume an olallieberry, I have to say my favorite is taken from a page of "The Boxcar Children": just simple fresh berries, with cream (and a sprinkle of sugar). I must have eaten three bowls of that on the first day!
