Blackberry Way

image I do so love Autumn, but we are not quite there yet , but it is however blackberry time of year. There is something deeply satisfying about walking along the cycle track 5 minutes from our home and returning one hour later with a container full of legitimately obtained brambles. I also found sloes which will be plunged into gin for a few months.

As I have already frozen quite a lot of berries this year,  I decided that today was bramble and apple crumble day. I had been kindly given a lot of apples from a tree in the garden of The Old Church guest house we stayed at near Berwick earlier in the week So here are my foragers’ crumbles, all ready to be eaten, frozen or passed on to my children . My sister says that blackberry vodka is rather yummy . . .  best get back to Blackberry Way !
