Lesser-Known Berries: Currants, Dewberries And More

We're all familiar with strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries. When they come into season, we gladly fill up on them before they dissappear again just a short three months later. And while these berries are delicious, there are so many more varieties you can be enjoying. Since all berries are in season now, this is the perfect time to learn about these lesser-known fruits. You might not have access to all the different varieties depending on where you live, but you can find many of them at your local farmer's market; or if you're up for it, you can pick them in the wild (just be sure that you're eating the right fruit, some berries can be toxic!).
