    Love thimbleberries! We have huge patches of them all the way both sides up the mountain trail. Our 4 year old won’t even touch a raspberry because she’s been raised on thimbleberries every summer 🙂

    I love thimbleberries! We always picked them when we were visiting my family up in the northern most part of Michigan. My aunt made tons of thimbleberry jam. So delicious! Thanks for sharing.

    aha! So that’s what they are called! I have see these before while hiking through the mountains here in California. Since I wasn’t sure they were edible, I didn’t try any, but now I will. Thanks!
