A fruit that grows in the wild, on field hedgerows. Blackberries are free and delicious; great to eat and for making a simple dye.
Blackberries are delicious raw and cooked in pies, jams, jellies and sorbets. Tradition has it that they must be picked before 26th September, but we’ve picked them later here in Somerset, in July in Spain, October in Scotland, and everything in between. They just need to be ripe and tasty.
