Here’s one very easy and quick summery sweet.
I am lucky enough to have some blackberries in my garden but they are everywhere as this time of the year. So don’t fork out a small fortune at the supermarket, instead head out for a walk outside and you will no doubt come across some. I know there are loads in the bushes at my local park. Nothing can beat free food, especially when you have forested it yourselves. Make sure you give them a good wash if you don’t want to find some small insects in your plate! I sure found a few tiny green worms and spiders before I gave mine a second wash.
I picked some the other day as I wanted to get as many as I could before our holiday. I freezed a good amount but I couldn’t resist using some straight away. As I was pushed for time with packing and last minute organisation for our trip, I opted for this simple baked dessert as it require very little preparing and only a short stay in the oven (it was a hot day).
I wanted to keep this dish on the healthy side to enjoy the fruity flavour of the blackberry and knowing I was going to spend a fair few weeks away in France, I thought it wouldn’t be a bad idea either!
If you needed a bit more convincing, blackberries are very versatile, you can add them to smoothies, soft serve ice-cream, make some jam or jelly or turn them into this delicious dessert.
Nutrition wise as with all berries, they are loaded with anti-oxidants. They are also a good source of magnesium and potassium so make the most of them now that they are in season.
