Sebastian and his step-father Peter picking harvesting blueberries in the forests of Hagfors. The contraption they’re using is called a Jonas Berry Picker. You rake it through the bushes – while gently coaxing the berries – and it plucks them for you.

I tried smultron berries for the very first time. Another name for them is Hideaways. They have a unique, very purfumey taste.

The first blueberries we picked this season in a beautiful, hand painted basket I picked up from a second hand store for 30 kroner.

Sebastian’s mother Pia and his step-father Peter cleaning blueberries. It’s actually an incredibly relaxing and enjoyable activity…believe it or not! And it’s ever so satisfying when you have a big bowl of shining, leaf free berries ready to be bagged up and frozen.

My very first kanelbullar! Rough but still beautiful and, not meaning to blow my own trumpet, but they tasted divine.

I feel so blessed to have been welcomed into Sebastian’s family. Here we are out walking in the woods of Hagfors.
