Free Trailside Food – Blackberries
Still some bilberries around too – Got a pies worth from brimham rocks at the weekend.
(then grazed blackberries from Brayton Barff the next day).
Years ago, they would have been picked clean. People don’t seem to bother these days!Posted 4 years ago
Thankfully my boys are ravenous foragers 🙂jekkylMember
Has anyone else, like myself, stopped off to recently enjoy the fruits of this fair nation, free blackberries now ripening on brambles in hedgerows at the edge of fields? mmmm yum yum. A good tip: rather than pick and pop one by one, pick a few and collect them in your free hand then pop them all in your mouth at the same time. Gloriously juicy and gorgeous. mmm yum yum. Watch out for maggots though!Posted 4 years agobrukSubscriber
Have an enormous overgrown bramble patch in the paddock. Favourite food of our 3 yr old right now. Ok lad lets go pick some brambles. Strange he never seems to come back with his bowl full but always has a mucky purple face/hands/t-shirt to go with his smile.
Loving it and contemplating trying to freeze some and maybe make some jam when I have more time.Posted 4 years agorickonSubscriber
Our apple trees have gone mental this year, I picked around 20 from one tree and it doesn’t look any different.
We’ve had raspberries and blackberries so far, the raspberries were really short in season though.
My missus found a maggot in one she was about to eat.Posted 4 years ago
