I found the most amazing big juicy blackberries at the weekend, and picked away! I made a really tasty apple and blackberry crumble at the weekend (yum yum yum) with half of what I had picked, but am not sure what to do with the other half. I always do a crumble you see. I was thinking of making some blackberry vodka as I heard it is best when you leave it to age over 3 months, so it would be ideally ready for Xmas (prefect) but I have never had a go at it before! Has anyone made this before and how did it work out? Failing that if you have an alternative great blackberry recipe tried and tested, please do let me know.
No tried and tested recipes I'm afaid though am planning blackberry and apple jam this week and somewhere I think I have a blackberry and apple chutney recipe! Going for the crumble as well as DH has insisted. Will use some others for smoothies - a banana, blackberries and apple juice - as fruit-loathing 3 yr old loves them
Have already made plum vodka and rhubarb vodka this autumn but blackberry vodka sounds yummy and I'm not much of a drinker!
Wow plum and rhubarb vodka! I am impressed. Have you made them before? They sound amazing. I made the blackberry vodka in the end, but it will be at its best for Crimbo, will definitely post the taste tester results :-) x
ours won't be ready till Christmas either, will have to have a taste comparison
Haven't made either before (though have tried other stuff a long time ago!) Found major stash of wild plums and had used all the jars for jam before we had finsihed them so had a go at the vodka. The rhubarb one was a Nigella recipe and we had the last lot of rhubarb to use and were crumbled out Will remember blackberry one for next year, sounds yummy.
