Tis the season for bramblin' (aka Blackberries). On each dog walk and trip to the bus stop, we take a bowl with us to gather as many of these luscious berries as possible.
I had great plans for freezing bags full for future use, but the truth is that the vast majority end up straight in Theo's tummy in is never-ending quest for the "mostest 'normous one".
However, some are ending up in our cupboards and on our plates. So far, we have made:
Crumble (or, as I would call it "Crisp") - we always top ours with oats mixed with melted butter and brown sugar or maple syrup.
Jam: I found this recipe sets best as I don't like the taste of jam sugar
We are also planning:
I'm quite tempted by wine making.
And who could go wrong with pie?
That is if Theo doesn't get them first...
