A berry big problem
My name is Stepfanie, and I'm a berry-holic. I've been eating berries all summer (not always local or organic ones, I must add). It started simple enough: A pint of blueberries to go with my morning yogurt. Soon I was snacking on them every day, a pint every couple of days. Blueberries became a gateway berry; I've added raspberries and now blackberries to the mix.
On yogurt, as a snack, in baked goods. I've even made banana-zucchini-blueberry bread. I've made my Gramma Willie's blueberry buckle, and I've frozen them for something different.
I've mostly stayed away from the biggest berry of all, strawberries, though I've dabbled a bit.
I just can't resist the antioxidants, the fiber, the vitamin C! I'm addicted, and I don't want to stop.

I'm sure I'm not alone in my addiction: Summer produce is just too irresistible! What summer fruit or vegetable is your addiction?
