..of mellow fruitfulness...or however the saying goes. We havn't even had our summer holiday yet and the blackberries are coming.
I picked enough for a crumble from the brambles in the garden with a little help from Billie
and Edward, who is always around when food is mentioned.
We made a delicious blackberry and apple crumble for tea, with ground almonds in the topping and served with hot custard of course. They were plenty of 'oohs' 'aahs' and 'mmms' at the table - nothing quite beats the taste of cooked blackberries - good old comfort food. I might make another one tonight - blackberry again, seeing as there are only two plums on the little plum tree.
