Certified Funky Fresh: Making a Tart with Wild Blueberries from Willow Rest

It breaks my heart. Every year since I’ve lived in Gloucester I’ve been able to visit my little spot (a secret, yo) in July and pick at least enough blueberries for a tart, maybe two or three. But this year, after a bumper crop last year, has been a bust. I have no idea what happened over here in East Gloucester, but my spot has little to no berries. Heartbreak. (it’s a large area, my spot, so I’m almost certain I was not beat to the punch. A friend reported something similar at his spot, not too far from my spot.)

So I was very excited yesterday when, while grabbing a delicious cuban sandwich over at Willow Rest, we found wild blueberries someone had just picked locally for sale.

Willow Rest, you saved the day! It was delicious!
