Blackberry Fest Bread of Elma Washington


Blackberry Fest Bread - Proposed Official Dessert of Elma Washington

Naomi and her handmade braided sweet bread
 As some of you may know by now, my home town is Elma Washington. I have lived all over the world - Geneva, Paris, New York, Mexico City - but little Elma Washington is my home town. So in honor of my hometown I created a new traditional treat for the Elma Summer Festival held in Elma Washington every August. 

I remember when Elma had its Slug Festival. Then it was changed to the Blackberry Festival, and now it looks like that has been changed to the Outlaw Festival. After careful thought, I realized that both 'slugs'and √≥utlaws' are not good for the image of poor little Elma. Slugs are disgusting, and we certainly do not want to glorify criminals or outlaws. 

I decided to make my own contribution to Elma Washington by inventing a special pastry to be served during their yearly late summer festival. I am going to ask the City of Elma to consider making this dessert the Official Dessert of Elma Washington.  I would like to introduce you to Blackberry Fest Bread. This is a dessert that I invented myself.  If it is made perfectly, it is a delicious and attractive recipe that people will love both looking at....and eating.

Blackberry Wine and Syrup Suppliers

It is always challenging to start a new project, one that I have never tried before. This might seem shocking to people who know me in the real world, but I doubt myself all the time. I never really know if I am doing things right. I am very good at gathering information,  but sometimes I am just too lazy to flesh out things. The problem is that I take on so much, I do so much, that I cannot give all of my projects the attention they deserve. Well, that is my moment of self loathing...

My Blackberry Plans This Year

Hello Everybody,


Coming to a breakfast table near you
If you read my gardening blog, you would know that blackberry season in Washington State (late July-August) is one of my favorite times of the year. I am a forager, like a soldier wandering the landscape for provisions, I raid our blackberry bushes with the boundless energy of a toddler. I do not tire of it. My eyes constantly scanning the bushes for hidden bundles of sweet blackberries hanging from the vine.Blackberries are free in Washington State! Anyone can pick them. But no one can pick them the way I do. 

So hop on over to Naomi´s Garden if you want to hear all about it. I do not post too much on my gardening blog right now because all I am growing are potatoes, carrots, strawberries, grape tomatoes and basil. When  we get a house, or a small farm, I will write more about my adventures in the garden. For now, it is Naomi´s adventures in the kitchen.
