Berries are very important at this time of year, and bilberries, a close relative of the North American blueberry, were particularly valued in ancient times. It is said that they were one of the offerings sent to the Irish High King as tribute at Lughnasadh. Today, we can honor their ancient value and enjoy the sweet tartness of a cooling berry-filled lemonade on a warm afternoon.
