Yummmm. I think I would get some Heavy Cream and beat it till it became Whipped Crwam and serve these berries with a dollop of Whipped Cream on them...OR, I might put it all into the blender! Sound good? YUMMMMMMU

What a yummy photo!

They would go straight in my mouth or perhaps a smoothie. :-) My daughter and I picked blackberries from our bush a few days ago.

I'd put aside a cupful of berries, then whip up some cream, mix in some creme fraiche, sugar and lemon juice, blend the rest of the berries, mix with the cream to make a thick mousse, then gently stir the cupful of whole berries.

Yum yum.

I would serve them with faisselle, that lovely French white cheese (6% fat only and oh, so tasty). No sugar to them, love the natural citrus taste of such wonderful fruits. They look delicious, TorAa. I'll get the coffee, you do the rest :)

I could eat them right out of the bowls as is, Tor! But oldold lady of the hills has it down pat!

AND we will be in A'dam from the 21th to the 31st. Where will you be staying? Please, let's see if we can rendezvous!!! Will you have your computer there? If not, I'll get our phone # to you. We live at Elandsgracht 126.

I would never manage to have them last long enough to even consider how to serve them.

I might crush some into a syrup, pour over poundcake, add ice cream, and then add whole berries on top, though.

Yes, in a crumble with clotted cream....

Serve them????? Do you really think that there would be any left to serve after this hungry monster has been involved???? *giggles*

Hm. I still don't know what that blue berries are, they're not what we call Blåbär, because they are soooo BIG! Or is it monster berries suitable for me? *giggles*

So, have you been over and congratulate Gattina on her birthday yet? I've given her a bday gift at my blog.

Oh, and don't forget to get out camping with SwordGirl!!!!

@All of you: Every single berry is from our summer house garden. Even the "blåbær".
We eat them as is, directly from the bushes.
Or, with real vanilla ice cream or vanilla sauce.
Or, the blueberries jammed on pancakes.
Or, as toppings, crushed berries, with milk/cream as is, flambé, as jelly, on cakes, terte de fruits.

I do think I'll make a blogspot with all yours favourites.

Thanks for sharing your recipes.

I'd put the blueberries in some fresh muffins! Yummy! And the black berries I'd make a cobbler...but I don't like raspberries. Sorry :)

I make my own ice cream. Either vanilla bean and add the berries on top OR make berry, berry ice cream. Yum!

Right... the blueberries just have to be for muffins, served hot with whipped cream. The raspberries, eaten as is with ice cream, yoghurt or whipped cream. They look scrumptious...mmmmm

How did you manage to grow berries like that in this years Norwegian "summer" weather ?

@Gersvik: This year only berries have grown. Even potatoes are a catastrophy

Looks delicious! I probably wouldn't serve them- I'd eat them all myself, just like they are.

Buckle! I love buckle the most because it is mostly all fruit and very little cake, but just enough cake to complement the berries!

Summer berries are the best! I was recently vacationing in Oregon and picked some fresh wild blackberries. They were delicious!

Your berries look wonderful. As for uses for the berries, I love to just eat them as is. Also, a few crushed in a wine spritzer are also delicious!

Oh thank you so much !! When I saw the picture I wanted to dive in the computer to get the fruits out I love them. Today is my last day it's sad that it went over so quickly. I was really lucky with the weather because the sun was present every day !! This coast is so beautiful and full of history because it's just in front of France and they always faught together. I will take the cruise there as soon as I am back and settled down for home again. I certainly will not miss this damned english keyboard with which I am fighting every day !

Oh! If only I could eat them! I adore berries! We haven't them here! They don't like south climate. It remember me when i am in the alpen. The mother of my Pierre cooks jelly. But i like to eat them directly in the woods. No time to cook them! You should visit me in Monaco. didn't you in Monaco a few time ago?

I don't think anyone has mentioned summer pudding? Stew the fruit very lightly with a little sugar. Line a bowl with slices of white bread. Fill with the fruit and juices, keeping a little juice for later. Make a lid with more bread on top, chill with a weight on top. Next day turn it out and pour the reserved juices over it. Serve with cream.
