Marionberries be good, very good! I doubt you'll be disappointed. A specific
variety of blackberry only grown in Willamette Valley of Oregon.http://www.oregon-berries.com/cx2/mk04f1a.htmShort excerpt from link:
 "A cross between the Chehalem and Olallieberry blackberries, the
Marionberry captures the best attributes of both berries and yields an
aromatic bouquet and an intense blackberry flavor for which it has become
known.  This premium quality flavor, described by tasters as "earthy
cabernet" and "sweet with notes of tartness", makes the Marionberry a superb
choice for canning, freezing, pies, jams, jellies and ice creams and has
earned the Marionberry an outstanding reputation worldwide."
We alway have Marionberry syrup on hand. The 42nd Street Cafe in Longbeach
WA makes a to die for Marionberry conserve we always buy 1/2 dozen jars or
so when at the coast. It's a marionberry, strawberry, orange peel, walnut
conserve affair that's simply delish:-)

Now why doesn't that surprise me at all that if it is *that* good, 
marionberry something could be found in your kitchen. Since I drifted OT 
already, how about the toasted oatmeal? I just picture this in a bowl with a 
few dried cherries and some chopped Macadamia nuts served with a fresh cup of 
Kona.
I'll probably be trying this breakfast sometime while you and Debi are in 
Hawaii (drool, drool).
Enjoy!

Mike,
We grow a lot of Marionberries down here in Roseburg!  This is one of the
great climates for them!  They are about my favorite, and I agree 100%, you
can't go wrong with them!  It is great on toast with some coffee.  Hey! how
about some marionberry jam with the Biscotti?
