      Awwww so sweet Catie. Thank you. Unfortunately is never blueberry picking season in Panama. I have to purchase my blueberries frozen + thaw. But oh boy our local bananas are THE BEST! We have some mini ones in the country side that are sooooo sweet you think you’re eating a candy bar.

    Ummmmmm YUP! I’ll be making this in a few weeks when Mum and Dad’s high bush blueberries are ready for harvest. They’re as big as grapes and have the MOST delicious flavour. I LOVE HARVEST SEASON!

    And your recipes too! Can’t wait for the book, Mayi!
