Here is a great recipe I came across for blackberries. I have already picked 3 lbs from the wild patch on our allotment and there’s plenty more to come. Serve this warm with clotted cream, creme fraiche or yoghurt.
A delicious recipe for when blackberries are in season from Waitrose.
Another good summer dessert from ” Cook Simple” by Diana Henry. Use Blueberries if you cant get Blackberries.
A favourite crumble from ” Cook Simple ” by Diana Henry.
A delicious seasonal cake for autumn from Tamal Ray. If you like you can use frozen blackberries, or raspberries.
I enjoyed this salad from Diana Henry several times in December and know it is a recipe I will keep returning to. I have served it to accompany sausages and smoked duck breast , but it would go well with many things. I couldn’t always get blackberries, so have used sable grapes as an alternative and it worked well too.
An easy tart to make when you have wild blackberries to use. As well as having several bushes on my allotment ( not welcomed by the plot rep) I love foraging for these on my walks around the green spaces of Bristol. The recipe is from ” The Violet Bakery Cookbook” by Claire Ptak. Anything left over can be eaten cold the next day.
This is from ” A Taste of the Scottish Islands” by Sue Lawrence.
A new recipe from Romy Gill. You can replace the gin with vodka if you like.
A seasonal recipe from Georgina Hayden.
A lovely variation on summer pudding from Thomasina Miers, best made with slightly stale sliced white bread. You will need a 1.5 litre pudding basin.
If you like you can replace the blackberries with stewed gooseberries in this Fool.
This recipe from Raymond Blanc uses custard rather than cream to make the Fool. I like it either way.
A favourite autumn recipe from Sophie Grigson. Adjust the levels of sugar to your taste. Serve hot or cold with clotted cream, creme fraiche, yogurt or scoops of vanilla ice cream.
