Foraging - Blackberries

For a couple of weeks now I have been searching out good blackberry spots, none were ready but nearly all the bushes we found were groaning under the weight of the yet ripened fruit. Yesterday while walking home from the park we spotted the unmistakable ebony bramble fruits on the verge near our house.

We made ice lollies and blackberry juice with them saving just enough for a crumble this evening. The ice lollies were really easy to make simply adding apple juice to the squashed berries. To make the juice we pushed the berries through a sieve then added water and a splash of apple juice for a touch of sweetness

What do you do with your blackberries?

  1. I eat them with vanilla soy- ice cream! And when I was little I went in search for them on the hills behind my grandmother's home and we always came back with our baskets packed, and made jams. And I have a garden and a bush of rasperries that due to the strange and late summer we've had this year still didn't give me one single fruit. Too bad...I love fruit especially if I can pick it right off the tree or plant. Have a great week!
