I checked on the cloudberries today. Some were ripe and some were not. I know from experience, no matter how hot it is outside, to wear carhartts. The horseflies are vicious and relentless. The berries are packed with a high content of vitamin C. One cup is equivalent to approximately 7 oranges. The seeds take seven years to germinate and rightly so because these berries are a super food. One of my many goals in life are to bring these to a local market, possibly further. As I delve into God’s bounty this 2019 berry season I am extremely thankful for the knowledge and desire to practice the Inupiaq lifestyle. Blessings from Alaska!
