Made my first berry crumble of the season yesterday.  Had to grab as many of the ripening Salmonberries as I could before those rapacious swarming Tent Caterpillars got them.  The race is on!  They go well with rhubarb if you find you don't have quite enough for a crumble at the start of the season or you can add them to a nice vinaigrette for your salads.  They can also be dried or frozen for later use if you find you have too many.  They're not the tastiest of the local berries, just the first ones to appear, and they taste a bit like grapefruit.  Dessert gone wild!  Next up will be Huckleberries, Thimbleberries and Wild Strawberries!
