That time of year again - blackberry picking - and if you have some apples and rhubarb also your away in a hack.
These recipes take work and effort - so ensuring its shelf life and giving you something of your own through the dreary winter is worth putting equal effort into.
I strongly suggest you read my previous posting on preserving, it is worth taking the effort.
Trust me, when you hear jars with a pop-up top 'click' as they cool, its a very rewarding feeling to know that's a batch of Your work that can safely be stored in the larder/kitchen for the next 12 months, until the next harvest.
Blackberry Curd Smooth, velvety - really worth the effort
Blackberry Chutney - A staple of English West Country cooking, and a real delight
Blackberry Jam - the quintessential Connemara childhood memory
Also try Beetroot and Blackberry Salad - Outstandingly good with Tom Durkins' Spiced beef from Cork
Please, please, please do take the time to comment and let me know what you think, I really appreciate the time and effort taken.
