3) Americans Are Eating a Lot More Berries. Here’s Why | The New York Times
Berries aren’t just a summer fruit anymore (exhibit A: our blackberry sage juice). Wondering why the extended season? Lately we’ve seen a berry boom with the development of “low-chill” berry varieties that allow farmers to grow these delicious superfoods all year long.
4) 31 Delicious Things To Cook in December | Buzzfeed

The National Christmas Tree is a given this time of year, but did you know you can sample our favorite DC Brau brews for free, explore the stunning ZooLights display at the National Zoo for free, AND explore the Library of Congress for free?
