They sell it here. I haven't tried it though.

Chopper, you got that right about the Michigan blueberries. And almost anything that gets kids outside beats video games!

I and my wife pick about 5 gallons of wild blueberries every summer. She has blueberry pancakes every Saturday. So that's one of the things I miss most, being able to eat the blueberry pancakes that I make. Being diabetic is a terrible thing. I make whole wheat blueberry pancakes every other weekend, and use just a bit of real, grade-b maple syrup on them. They are still very, very good. But I miss the pancakes that I make with white, all purpose flour. They are so light, tender, and fluffy, and moist.

When I die, and get that resurrected body, that's gonna be one of my first meals, blueberry pancakes with grade A maple syrup, made with wild Michigan blueberries and local syrup, if we eat things in the next life that is. I'm going to eat a stack of at least 9 of the little beauties. Oh, all right. I'll share.

Venison, partridge, and wild duck. Those are the foods I miss. But perhaps what I miss the most is the start of walleye season which was also the start of wild aspargus season followed closely by morel season. And I miss going with my aunt and cousins to get fresh milk from the farm...we all fought over the cream at the top to put on our Frosted Flakes...

Maybe what I really miss are those times with my dad and extended family.

Wow that sounds amazing.

I like canned peas fine, but it's the frozen ones that are mealy and blah tasting to me.

I'm just the opposite, Z.
Give me frozen peas any day over canned. Canned peas remind me of lima beans.

I mith quisp, too, BT ;^)

I would have to be living on survival rations of SPAM and canned peas before I'd eat either...

I've found store brand frozen peas to be mealy and tasteless. A name brand (Green Giant or Birdseye) of baby peas is usually pretty good.
