As if my weekend couldn’t get any better, we took a trip to Brimham Rocks today. I’d always imagined them to be like many other rocks, in that they would be just one lump of rock on the edge of a hillside.
Oh no! The site was amazing.
As if the day couldn’t get any better, the friend we were with pointed out a berry which was everywhere on the low ground. They look and taste like blueberries but are in fact a native British equivalent: bilberries.
A quick internet search suggests they are an even greater ‘superfood’ than blueberries, although my interest in them was more simply the fact that they were free food. And fortunately I happened to have a tub big enough for a pound or so of them.
So, that means a couple of jars of bilberry jam to add to my preserve collection. What a happy bunny I am!
