We were picking and eating berries in the garden yesterday. The raspberries are peaking quickly, though the blueberries are in various stages of ripeness. We have three different blueberry bushes: early season, mid-season, and late season ripeners. The idea is to have berries all season long. Amaya tasted the berries thoughtfully, discussing the differences in flavor between the paler berries and ones that were fully blue. To my surprise she decided that she liked them all. The tart flavor of the mostly ripe berries appealed to her just as much as the deeper sweetness of those fully ripe. It was good reminder that the best flavor depends the perspective of the taster.
