It's almost blackberry season...

It's nearly here... the bowls, the buckets, the scratches, the stains... It's not just the fun of picking them and figuring out what to do with them after you've picked them, but the blackberry is so good for you. The blackberry contains polyphenol antioxidants that up-regulate certain beneficial metabolic processes. The astringent blackberry root can be used in herbal medicine as a treatment for diarrhea and dysentery. Blackberries are noted for their high nutritional contents of dietary fibre, vitamin C, vitamin K, folic acid and the mineral manganese. Ideal for: jams, jellies, smoothies, margaritas, on oatmeal, on pancakes, cobblers, crumbles, salads, popsicles...
