I’ve discovered a good way to get the fruits I like inexpensively and regardless of the season and that way is to buy frozen fruit.  I had recently picked up a bag of blueberries and a bag of strawberries for smoothies.  I usually just take the frozen fruit and put it directly in the blender but a couple of weeks ago I let some sit out on the counter in a bowl and the end result was better than I expected.  The blueberries were round and sweet and tart and the strawberries were a little soft but not to soft and they were sweet as well.  It was a nice surprise and a reminder that no matter the season I can go to the freezer section of the grocery store and find fruit.
