Blackberries!!!

Have loads of wild blackberries growing at the back of my section. What can i do with them, shame to let them go to waste, would prefer savoury recipes but anything would be nice. TIA

apple and blackberry pie, or blackberry jelly jam

Freeze lots free flow then they won't waste. Yummm
Sorry don't have anything savoury for them. And I like them on the plum torte recipe mmmm

Freeze the extra's for later on when you crave them out of season. You lucky thing to have an abundance, Mum had a special 'patch' (on the farm before they sold up) that Dad was not allowed to spray, but was allowed to 'trim' to keep under control! ! !

Tommi2, if you use the search box on the left of the screen you will find a number of threads on blackberries which should give you some ideas.

Yes lucky you. Freeze them and bring them out during winter for pies and jelly etc. I had four small plants on our farm that I told the husband NOT to spray. Guess what, he sprayed them. He forgot! ! . Man did he get an earful when I found them gone LOL. I will just have to 'cultivate' some more.

Typical Male! He'll be the first one to gripe in the winter when he can't have a Blackberry and Apple pie or freshly made Blackberry Jam/Jellie on his morning toast! !

We set them raw into a red jelly - port wine jelly is nice. A nice light summer pudding.

lol ok thats it, I'm going roadside searching out the backblocks tomorrow, I have the apples (lovely local orchard sells bags of about 15 kg of pet apples for $6, excellent for sauce and freezing), so an addition of blackberry to my mix for winter pies will be scrummy.

alig65, you are right. He is ploughing through the blackberry jelly I made recently from last years berries.
