PORTLAND: Berry Picking on Sauvie Island + Blueberry Crumble Recipe

DSC_0438.jpg

Kennedy has a book called "Blueberries for Sal" and she's kind of obsessed.  The obsession was born from an unconditional love for bears (not so unconditional after she watched Brave), but it lead her down a path of truly loving this idea of berry picking ... And in the spirit of berry picking really resonating with her (and Marek reliving some childhood memories), we wondered over to Sauvie Island to get to work.  The unexpected variety of berries blew me away!  And after the day was over we turned these perfectly sweet blueberries into a five ingredient, blueberry crumble ... The easiest crumble ever!
