More free food from supermarkets

These wineberries, also called Japanese raspberries, have been a regular part of my summer foraging over the last couple of years since we found them growing in a supermarket car park, and i grabbed a handfull today on the way to get some milk.

They look a little like the delicious cloudberry except they grow on a plant much more reminicent of a real raspberry with tall upright stems. I've never actually tried including them in any cooking because they are far too tasty to have ever made it as far as the kitchen. They aren't a native plant but supermarkets, industrial parks, swimming pools and other modern developments seem to fill up their flower beds with all sorts of interesting edibles that we wouldn't normally find in the UK.
