Buffalo Berries

We found LOTS of buffalo berries / prairie plums tonight on the prairie. The plants were easy to spot after the burn. Most years we have difficulty finding the plants in the tall grass. 
My 21 month old daughter ate about a dozen of them. They taste like fresh peas and have a delightful crunch. What a treat!

By the way - this photo was taken in the burn area. Everything is growing back beautifully!
