2012/259: Thimbleberries

My dear readers who are also Stuart and Trevor fans already know that we got to meet up with Kathy in L’Anse one afternoon. Well Kathy told us about thimble berries which are similar to raspberries. After that day, we always looked for them on our walks through the woods, and picked the ripe ones. I think it was still a little early in the season, because most of them weren’t quite ripe yet.
This one looked so perfect I had to take a picture of it first 😉

We also found Thimble Berry jam and bought a jar to bring home with us. It was delicious! Sara disagreed, and Melissa never wanted to taste it, which was fine…..more for me!

  1. I love them! Never saw thimbleberry jam before: it would take a lot of berries to make a jar of that!

    • Yes, it would take a lot of berries! I’ve only seen the jam in the souvenir shops, and it’s more expensive than the other jams. Couldn’t resist it, though, and HAD to try it 🙂

  2. Never had a thimbleberry before. Do they taste a lot like raspberries? Love that top shot – so cool looking.

    • Yes, they’re very similar to raspberries….but better 🙂
      Thanks, Karen.

  3. Guess what, Michaela? We just bought TWO thimbleberry jams to give to Barry’s therapy people to honor their good job in helping his two knee replacements to get better. We found one jar for $10.99 and the other jar for $13,99–in the same store. Same brand, everything! Guess we were lucky to get the first price. Love thimbleberries. Hard to describe their taste to someone else, Yes?

    • That’s odd that one jar of the jam was cheaper than the other! Maybe someone stuck the wrong price tag on it? I think $13.99 is what we paid for ours…. and we can order online! 🙂 Yes, very hard to describe their taste.
