Wild strawberries grow in sparse patches so if you want a full mouthfull you need to move around and gather some. If you hold them in your hand they get mushy. Then you can mix and match!

Also it's fun.

fuuuuuuuuck I miss wild strawberries

I grew up in the Catskills in Upstate NY, we had forest right behind our house and wild strawberries grew throughout a lot of it. There was one particularly huge patch back behind my grandma's house, too. Never collected them on a straw though, I brought a little basket with me to gather them up for later washing and eating.

Kausi kestää viime vuotta pidempään

Salon mukaan satokausi kestää elokuuhun asti, jos sääennusteet pitävät paikkansa.

- Kun kausi alkaa myöhäisessä, niin se venyy myös sieltä toisesta päästä. Mutta elokuussa tietenkin riskit kasvavat, koska päivät lyhenevät, yöt pitenevät, kasvuston sekaan tulee yökaste ja sateen riski kasvaa, kun yöt ovat pidempiä. Viileä sää ei kuitenkaan häiritse kasvavaa mansikkaa, toisin kuin helteet.

Mushroom picking is great. Just memorize the deadly ones and if you're ever in doubt discard it. And don't eat a mushroom before you've identified it.

Nothing beats a steak with potatoes and chanterelle sauce.

Also it might be wise to get another book more specified to your region. Have one bible of mushrooms that you can always refer to if needed, and a handy book that goes in your pocket that's made with your general region in mind.

Well you truly are a better weaver than I am if you can finish one in 5 minutes.

What people in this thread don't seem to realize is that this method isn't an alternative to having a bucket and one of those bailer things when you seriously go collecting berries. It's for when you're walking in the forest or alongside a country road and see a patch of berries. Which happens pretty often during summertime.

Wild strawberries? They're pretty gud. All the flavour of a strawberry in 1/10 the size basically. But it's not just intensity of the flavour, it's a much more complex taste IMO. Yoghurt or jam or something made from wild berries tastes completely different even if the total amount of flavor in the end product is approximately the same.

Pic related, slowly working to fill your straw while on a walk.

@Flameblow
Because it is an optimal way of transporting them if you didnt had a usable container with yourself.
Playing in the woods with your friends and suddently finding barries was real joy. We would pick them up, impale them and carry them to our "nature base" where we chilled out and enjoy the sweetness of such a wonderfull treat eating them one by one. Really fun.
If your praents didnt teach you about this seemigly "hidden" berry carrying technique - you, like OP implied, missėed out.

No, you just eat the berries there, or pick a handful. If you're going out with the intention of looking for berries, a plastic bag shoved in the pocket works fine. You however, are insistent that sticking each berry on a stick is the only way to do this.

Whenever I visited my grandmother's house up north I would see these wild strawberries all over the front yard. I never realized you could actually eat them/tasted good. They had always looked too small and weird to me, plus I was always taught not to eat random berries you find outside.

Wild strawberries are very delicate and especially in the hands of little kids get mushed right away. Also it gives them something to do that isn't watching television. Sounds like you're jealous to 8 year olds, pretty sad thing to see if I'm honest.

It's called having a basket or a pint? You can collect more berries that way than you ever could by skewering them, and then if you want them for later they'd spoil and dry out quicker because of the holes.

I have never heard of putting berries on straws. Seems like some dumb peasant trick when perfectly good alternatives are available.

But burgers triggered by fresh air and people like yourself try to attack everyone as one autistic finn because you, like the OP says, missed out.

Sounds like fun. You could even say those who didn't walk around forest with an air rifle, missed out? Almost like there are plenty of fun things to do in the woods. Besides, this activity is for people too young to be trusted with guns.
