The 2013 blackberry harvest. Now what…?


I  got up early this morning and headed out to scour the hedgerows for blackberries, dragging along a reluctant 7 year old (I believe that being made to pick blackberries is an important part of childhood!). Kids need to know that not all food comes from a supermarket don’t they? Plus there is food out there in the wild which is wonderful! I also spotted lots of elderberries and rosehips but I wanted to concentrate on the blackberries for now.

The question is though, what to do with them?  I was thinking of making a blackberry and apple pie, or maybe a crumble, but I’m not sure. What do you make with blackberries? Any suggestions would be very welcome!
