Wondering what to make with fresh berries? Here’s the ultimate list of berry recipes, so you’ll have plenty of inspiration, no matter which berries are currently in season! (You can make many of these recipes with frozen berries, too!)I love berries! Here's an ultimate list of over 100 berry recipes using blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and more! Perfect for summer! #BerryRecipes

Berries are an essential part of summer for me. Berry picking always makes my summer bucket list, although I don’t always get to gather the same kinds of berries every year. My childhood was full of blueberries–buckets and buckets of them, picked and eaten fresh on Uncle John’s farm.

When we moved to Michigan for three years, we found an abundance of berries growing wild in the woods. Early summer was the time for black raspberries; in late July we found a bog teeming with wild blueberries, and in August the wood’s edge was dotted with blackberry brambles.

Our current home in Alabama doesn’t have our beloved black raspberries, but there’s plenty of evidence that wild blackberries will be ready soon. Between those and the blueberries my parents are cultivating in their backyard, I think we’ll be all set on the berry front this year!

Although I (and hopefully you, if you’re a self-respecting berry lover), eat half the berries I pick before they reach the bucket, I do like to bring a good portion home to make into pies and muffins, to top homemade yogurt, or to freeze for the cold, berry-less months ahead.

I’ve collected these berry recipes from around the web to serve as inspiration all summer long. I hope you’ll find this helpful as you contemplate how to use your own berry harvest this year! If you’re not sure where to pick your own berries, check out this site for state-by-state listings of farms, or spend some time in the woods and hunt down those wild ones!
