Add some to a basic muffin mix, in the bottom of a cake tin for upside down pud, or on a meringue base (small bought ones or a big one for a fancy pav). They go really well with duck if you want a special dinner.
Vodka. Weigh the empty vodka bottle. Fill almost half of bottle with blackberries and then weigh again. The difference between the two weights is the weight of the fruit, so add the same weight in castor sugar. Top up with vodka. Shake. Leave in cool dark place for three months, shaking at least every week. Strain through a coffee filter paper. Eat berries with ice cream. Drink infused vodka with ice or in shots.
