Go, Go, Grapes: A Fruit Chant

Wednesday, March 14th, 2012

Okay, so I’m more than a little bit excited about Go, Go, Grapes: A Fruit Chant (Release date May 22, 2012 by Beach Lane Books/S&S). Kirkus subscribers can see the Kirkus review of the book already. I’ve just started posting fruit-related pictures and posts. More to come!

More Fruit Not In Go, Go, Grapes: A Fruit Chant

Wednesday, March 14th, 2012

A few more fruit that did not fit in Go, Go, Grapes: gooseberries and black raspberries. It included red raspberries. But here are black raspberries. They grow wild here but are also raised commercially. They are NOT blackberries. They are the same shape as red raspberries and sometimes have a slightly bitter aftertaste. Wild animals around here seem to prefer them over red raspberries. So does my husband Jeff…hmm….

Cranberries Sour Over Go, Go, Grapes

Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

Alas, so sorry, cranberries! We could not fit you into Go, Go, Grapes: a Fruit Chant which is coming out May 22. Go ahead and be sour. We love your sourness. Tart is art, we say! Here are a few consolation photos of how you looked when we photographed you in hopes of including you in the book.

These are from the Hovenkamp’s booth at South Bend Farmer’s Market. They are Michigan cranberries. (Sorry, New Jersey, we went closer to home for ours.) We live 7 miles from Michigan. Cranberries are also grown extensively in Wisconsin.

Look for a cranberry muffin recipe soon. How much do we love cranberries? Well, we served cranberry (and blueberry) muffins at our wedding reception oh so many years ago.
