Blackberry Way

In the words of the 'Move'..."Blackberry Way, absolutely pouring down with rain, it's a terrible day..." No, actually is wasn't raining, is was quite sunny! But now I've got that song in my head, so I thought you might like it too! We (me and him indoors) went blackberry picking...thinking it was a bit early for blackberries, we only took a little sandwich bag each but ended up picking three and a half pounds in about forty minutes. The bags were bursting, blackberry juice was running everywhere! So now I'm hunting for a Blackberry Jam or Jelly recipe. Does any body out there have a tried and tested one?? Picking more later so should have loads! Happy Weekend!!


  1. Mmmmm yummy, we picked blackberries yesterday and the day before without ever leaving the house. We have lots of blackberries that encroach on the garden from the forrest. So far I have used some to make muffins and eaten some as they are so sweet and juicy. Yesterdays ones I put into the freezer and will make jam when i have more to add and also want to make some pies or crumbles for the freezer too

    If you find a good jam recipe perhaps ou could share it pleeeeeease

    Hugs Jackie x

  2. Oh wow Lyn thats a load of blackberrys, hope you find your jam receipe, Ive probably got one somewhere but not to hand, it might be an idea to mix them with apples. hugs Shirleyxxx

  3. Ohooo I'm hunting them out too, promise to share if I find one!

  4. Hi hun
    oh we ended up with a lovely day, wasn't spose to be! ya got some apples to go with them? yum yum, will get prize of 2moro hun, sue,x

  5. Mmmmmmmmmmm Lyn those look gorgeous. We are going to have quite a lot of cooking apples this year could do with some of those blackberries. Anne x

  6. I'mno help with a recipe Lyn, sorry! Wanted to say - how come you're only an hour down the road and didn't experience the TORRENTS of rain that we've had today then? However, glad you didn't - lovely blackberries MRs!!

  7. sorry not got a receipe but they look yummy,x

  8. I throw them in the freezer ... shaking them as they are just freezing to keep them seperate ...that way I can grab a handful for a pie or crumble to go with apples. I know I have a recipe somewhere for any soft fruit and apple but not bramble alone.

  9. mmmmn! Blackberry and apple crumble! I could just eat that now!
    Try BBC they usually have some good recipes, however, I could scan some recipes and e-mail over to you tomorrow if that will help?!
    You are right about them being early tho, we used to pick them in the last week of school holidays when I were a lass. And a few years ago I can remember picking them in September. Who knows when we will pick them next year!!

  10. Ummmm...if I was visiting you would not have enough of those babies left for any type of jam!

  11. Hi Lyn, I love that song, ah reminds me of my youth! :-(
    Good luck finding a good jam recipe - we made some great stuff in Domestic Science (that's what it was called when I was at school!) including the best shortbread I've ever had and scrummy bread, but I was off when they made jam - not that I've got any of the recipes anyway.

  12. Hello Lynn, I'm running so late on WOYWW that I decided to look at all your recent posts as well and oh, those, blackberries look delicious. We call them brambles where I come from and my late mum made the best bramble jelly ever. Unfortunately, she didn't leave a recipe so can't help here. However, she did leave a recipe for mint chutney that might interest you if you find yourself with a glut of mint this year. Elizabeth x #73

  13. Those blackberries look so yummy. theres a few bushes along the walkway to the next street, im thinking i might have to go make something with them now mmmmm... and hi darling hope you are well xx
