Wild Berries

There are many different wild berries in northern Minnesota; probably the most common is the blueberry and chokecherry. There are also wild raspberries, strawberries, juneberries, pincherries and more. One that doesn’t get much attention is the low bush cranberry. It grows in the bog and it’s not real easy to pick because they grow individually. If there is any kind of a crop it’s worth picking a few, because they are nothing like you’d buy in the store. The cranberry sauce made to go with a turkey or wild bird is really special. There is a small bog close to Baudette that I checked the other day and there are not many berries; it may have been to dry this summer.
