Door to Nature: Thimbleberry Flowers and Fruit - Door County Pulse
Thimbleberry flowers are abundant on the large shrubs along Door County’s east side. Photo by Roy Lukes.
Many wild, white-flowered plants reach center stage during the last week of June in northeastern Wisconsin. The Canada anemone, Canada dogwood, highbush cranberry, oxeye daisy, red dogwood and thimbleberry are all decked out in their immaculate white.
The species that we will keep clearly in mind throughout July, patiently waiting for its delectable fruit to ripen, is the thimbleberry: Rubus (ROO-bus) parviflorus (par-vi-FLOR-us). Some people call the blackcap raspberry, Rubus occidentalis, the thimbleberry. Its leaflets are whitish and felty on the undersides.
Far more people know the genuine thimbleberry to be the large, juicy, red raspberry, with tiny seeds and tart flesh born on smooth canes with huge, handsome, maple-like, textured leaves. Few areas within its entire range are more famous for this favorite wild berry than Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

Ruby red, tart and floral, dried hibiscus puts a tropical twist on drinks, desserts and more - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Uses: Cocktails, desserts, sauces, marinades or dressings, can be used as a food-safe dye.
Flavor: Tart, cranberry-like, slightly tannic, dank, subtly floral.
Where to get it: Natural food stores, Mexican grocery stores, online.
The hibiscus flower represents some of mother nature’s finest work. With its trumpet-like contours, blazing colors and tropical character, the hibiscus bloom attracts butterflies and hummingbirds and brings an exotic vibe to Wisconsin patios in summer.
On top of all that, hibiscus flowers are edible. Dried and steeped, they add a splash of brilliant color and flavor to drinks, desserts and more.
Dried hibiscus flower (technically the calyx, or part of the plant that protects the bloom before it opens) has a rich culinary history and has been used medicinally for centuries. The flowers are credited with improving blood pressure and respiratory health while being rich in vitamin C. Some food manufacturers are beginning to use hibiscus as a natural food coloring in place of artificial red dyes.
Steeping the dried flowers as a tea is an easy place to start, allowing you to experience the flower’s tart, fruity flavor in the simplest way possible. Steep in boiling water using a tea steeper at a ratio of 2 tablespoons dried hibiscus for every 1 cup of water. Let steep 5 to 10 minutes and then enjoy hot or iced.
A traditional Mexican drink, agua de Jamaica or hibiscus water, uses sugar to balance the tea’s natural tartness; the refreshing tea is served over ice with the midday meal.
Hibiscus is a natural fit for sultry summer cocktails. Vodka, gin, rum and tequila all play well with hibiscus, along with ingredients like pineapple, lemon, lime, ginger and mint. An easy way to add a tropical touch to an everyday drink is to have hibiscus simple syrup at the ready. Using equal parts sugar and water, along with dried hibiscus in the ratio mentioned above, bring... Jun 22, 2019
More than just a pretty petal: How flowers feed the world around us - Vernon Morning Star
Structure of the flower often determines what animals can obtain the nectar. Simple, saucer-shaped flowers (e.g., salmonberry, or a buttercup) are open to any hungry visitor, although some may be better pollinators than others. Some flowers are more specialized and complex. For example, columbines keep the nectar reward in long spurs at the “back” of the flower, away from the entrance. Only hummingbirds or long-tongued bees can reach that nectar from the entrance, and in so doing, they contact the sexual parts of the flower and achieve pollination. (Of course, some animals have figured out how to rob the flower of its nectar, without pollinating; short-tongue bees bite the end of the nectar spur and steal the nectar).
[Pixie eyes, lupine and iris: Wildflowers bloom in Juneau]
Nectar is not just sugar water, although that’s what most of us put in our hummingbird feeders. Nectar composition is highly variable, depending not only on species of flower, but also age of the flower and growing conditions of the plant, the availability of water, humidity, microbial contamination and probably other factors too. Sugar concentration varies, and so do the proportions of different sugars. The principal sugars are sucrose (composed of one glucose molecule and one fructose) and its two component sugars, the proportions varying with how much of the sucrose has been hydrolyzed. Other sugars can be present in trace amounts. Flowers that are pollinate... Jun 22, 2019

Floral and lush, this $12 South African white wine blend blossoms in your glass - The Washington Post
This is the first rosé Lambrusco I’ve tried, and it’s a delight. Flavors of watermelon, strawberry and wild herbs make for a refreshing patio pounder, and if you’re not careful, you may finish it before the food is ready. And there are bubbles! This wine is new to the market, but it should get wider availability, especially if customers aren’t skeptical about trying a pink lambrusco. ABV: 11 percent.Imported and distributed by Winebow: Available in the District at Rodman’s. Available in Maryland at Bradley Food & Beverage in Bethesda, the Perfect Pour in Elkridge.
Domaine Naturaliste Rebus Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Wilyabrup, Margaret River, Australia, $30
Winemaker Bruce Dukes has crafted an elegant, plush New World-style cabernet that explodes with ripe flavors of blackberries, currants and blueberries. Even with its fruit-forward flavors, it maintains an Old World sensibility — the oak is beautifully integrated to give structure and tannin to the wine, the alcohol is in check, and there’s a mineral undertone that suggests a fine bordeaux. Pair this with the next large hunk of beef you grill for a summer party. ABV: 14 percent.Imported by Artisans & Vines. Distributed in the District by Hop & Wine, in Maryland by Artisans & Vines, and in Virginia by Hop & Wine and LK Wine Tours & Sales. Available in the District at MacArthur Beverages, Rodman’s. Available in Maryland at Bethesda Co-Op in Cabin John, Bradley Food & Beverage and Georgetown Square Wine and Beer in Bethesda, Finewine.com and the Wine Harvest in Gaithersburg, Takoma Park-Silver Spring Co-Op in Takoma Park. Available in Virginia at Aldie Peddler in Aldie, Locke Store in Millwood, Murphy Beverage in Winchester, Vienna Vintner in Vienna.
Gone Rogue Mish Mash White 2018
Great Southern, Australia, $23
This delicious riot of a wine — designed to appeal to iconoclasts of all ages — is a blend of riesling and pinot grigio, with a dash of viognier tossed in for good measure (and, well, aromas and body). That recipe corresponds to none of the paradigms of the wine world, but it succeeds with a frenzy of flavor, balance and fun. Both the name and label encourage us to “go rogue” and defy limitations. ABV: 13 percent.Imported by Artisans & Vines. Distributed in the District by Hop & Wine, in Maryland by Artisans & Vines, and in Virginia by Hop & Wine and LK Wine Tours & Sales. Available in the District at Rodman’s.
