    Thursday 265 - Down on the farm?

    The berry tree in the corner of my yard had fruited!

    LOL, For years I have picked the berries off the tree and eaten them , but have no idea as to what they are.

    Tomorrow I will post a detailed description of what the tree and fruit look like so someone can tell me what they are!

    In the mean time, I got pancakes, waffles, bacon and some sausage going-Coffee and Kahlua/Bailey's anyone?

    Sounds good to me, barkeep!


    How about using some of the berries to make some compote for the pancakes?

    Or I can just supply some nice fresh maple syrup (The syrup is even Lady approved!)

    If the 'Lady of the House' approved it, how can it not be good?

    I'll have to read up on the compote? Let me pour you a hot one!
    DONE!

    "From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Compote is used in a number of cultures to define different dishes. Common preparation of a compote is a cooked dish of fresh or dried fruits, simmered whole or in pieces in a sugar syrup. A compote can also refer to a game meat dish containing rabbit, pigeon or partridge, cooked in a roux for a long time over low heat with bacon, and pearl onions until the meat has completely cooked to a fine texture. A third type of compote is a drink made in Eastern European countries from dried fruitsimmered in water and sugar and set-aside to infuse flavors until ready to drink."

    Do we have "Mystery Berrie Compote" ready now?

    Thanks! here we go with the berry hunt.

    The leaves are green, duh!, and are elongated/oval and have a serrated edge to them, The berries are white then turn to a deep purple as the ripen, they do grow long the branch. The fruit is made up of little lobes and when picked they keep a bright green stem....

    Anyone? Please?

    C&S,
    compote on your cakes!
    DONE!

    BM,
    One special?

    DONE!

    Karen, If you can guess what the berries are you get a the special berry smoothie, too!

    DONE!

    Gini,

    "bring on the compotes"? Sounds like a Mafia hit-man!

    DONE!

    Redd,

    Of course!

    But we have a crank Ice Cream Machine......You have to pull a shift!

    DONE?

    It's gonna be in the 100's in a couple of days!
