I grabbed my little basket, which is far too small really and headed out for my secret foraging spot!
However....there are some risks involved....
The green bits are bits of Doc leaf that I rubbed all over my stung self. And yes. It works.
|Thank you Doc Leaves!|
|What's the story morning glory?|
|The single & most delicious raspberry on earth.|
|The best spot!|
|My basket is way too small!|
I got my berries home, washed them & picked out any creepy crawlies that came with them. Heated them up, mashed them down, squished them through a sieve. Added an equal amount of sugar a good squeeze of fresh lemon juice and cooked it for about 30 minutes all together.
What I've got is a huge jar of very jammy, very sweet & extremely fruity seedless blackberry jam!
It is even better than it sounds! Yum!
I'll wait a week or so and go down for my second forage! Hmm....what shall we make with those berries?
Do you have a fave blackberry treat or recipe?
