Stewart: Grow your own exotic berries in backyard
Most people overlook a whole treasure trove of summer’s lesser-known berries, a cache that includes gems such as currants, gooseberries, mulberries and lowbush blueberries, the smaller, sweeter cousins of the more familiar highbush variety.While some of these berries taste just right on their own, others are best tamed with sugar.
Try tossing them into salads, mixing some into pancake batter or baking them into tarts. You can even enjoy them in savory dishes; pickled or plain, their tartness strikes a pleasing contrast against rich meats, such as ham and roast chicken. Or, simply transform them into jams and jellies, and savor their flavors long after the last berry has been plucked from its vine.
