Last week when they took the boat out after dinner, Frederik and Emil found a blackberry bush. The bush can only be reached by boat so it was still full of berries!! Frederik and Emil ate a large dessert of them, but the next day they went back with containers and brought home more than a kilo of super sweet dark blackberries.
This is what we did with them:
eat them just like that
make dark purple ice cream
make two pots of jam (the only thing I photographed)
make syrup for lemonade (we googled for recipes, found only vague ones, then made something up ourselves)
bake blackberry muffins (using a blueberry muffin recipe by Nigella Lawson)
We had the greatest time!!
