What could be better on a hot late summer afternoon than foraging for blackberries.

Seems a real glut this year after plenty of rain and hot warm days. Brings back happy childhood memories of going out picking with my mum. Then taking them back to my grandmothers where she magically transformed them into jars of beautiful jam or made hot pies topped with buttery pastry... Mmm can almost smell them now!

Share your foraging memories!


  1. I've noticed there are lots of blackberries this year and look forward to foraging. I do hope you are going to share a recipe with us with your usual 'magic twist'!

  2. Thanks Sally yes the blackberries are amazing this year, make sure you get out picking before they go over! Yes will post a recipe soon.
