Blackberry Season is Almost Here!

You can just see them starting to ripen on the tops of bushes all over town. Delicious, tart Blackberries. There are soooo many great ways to celebrate the flavour of these dark , rich berries. You will no doubt start to see many people out with ice cream buckets filled to the brim with these little guys. They’ll be made into jams, baked into yummy pies or frozen and used in winter to add some sweetness to our cozy dinners.

We love searching the web for cool, creative way to use blackberries in our everyday cooking. Here are a few recipes that we’ve found to tempt your taste buds!

Comment below and tell us what you’re going to do with your buckets of berries.

What To Do For The Rest Of The Summer

300188_10150347252300011_2424979_n[1] We are almost half way through August…how did that happen? We have been soaking up every minute with our families. The weather this summer has allowed us to get out there and really explore all of the fabulous events and programs that Campbell River has to offer. We’ve camped at some of our wonderful local campsites and enjoyed afternoons spent at our stunning local beaches. We’ve fished, swam, SUP’d ( Stand Up Paddle board), hiked, explored…whew! The great news is that there is so much more to see and do before ( and just after) your lives get back to the daily schedules of school and work.  Below is just a small sampling of some cool things coming up here in Campbell River. If you have an event you think we should highlight, comment below and let us know about it!

Now Get OUT there and enjoy the rest of this amazing summer!
