The blueberries of Finland

Currently, we have many groups taking a hiking trip to Nuuksio national park outside Helsinki. This time, it was raining. An unfortunate weather for hiking, but without rain, the trees and plants will suffer. On the low bushes, some blueberries had already ripened. This year, they have come very early, and the strawberry season is already over. In Finland they sell berries in large boxes on the market, and many buy and freeze them so they can be enjoyed during the winter as well. How do you enjoy your berries?
