veg of the week – blackberry

Blackberries

It seems everywhere I look these days there are brambles bursting with beautiful ripe blackberries…meaning I now need to schedule in an extra 5 minutes everywhere I go so I can allow for some blackberry snacking time.

These tangy berries are in season from September through October, and despite costing around 1 pound for a punnet at tesco, they are usually cheaper and in abundance at farmers markets and green grocers around this time of year. Or you could always pick some yourself for free!

Keep an eye out for some of our own blackberry creations this week, but in the meantime here’s a little blackberry appreciation for you with the internet’s finest recipes, and this lovely tune from Laura marling here
