    Blackberries

    No, not the cell phone thingie. These:


    Wow, just strolled over to the kimchee market, and my neighbourhood is chocker with 'em. Not really ripe yet, but picked a few that were done and they are fab. Wondering who to sucker in to tromp in the barbed thicket to pick (of course, the best are way in the bladdy middle).
    So, should I make jam, compote, syrup? Any recipes out there?
    Eat your heart out, Norts.

    ^ You got it, Babes. Thai Airways delivery work for you?
    I'll try to get my Hatyai camera working and take some snaps of the field.

    Fresh up are great, or you can make a syrup with them (if I remember correctly) and serve it over ice cream or pound cake. Made some kind of pudding with them and some other berries between layers of bread once and it was nice.

    Has to be a classic.
    Apple and blackberry crumble.

    Ingredients
    Filling:
    3 large Bramley apples
    30g/1¼oz butter
    150g/5oz caster sugar
    pinch of cinnamon
    80g/3oz fresh blackberries
    Topping:
    50g/2oz unsalted butter, diced
    110g/4oz plain flour
    55g/2oz caster sugar
    mint leaves
    icing sugar

    Method
    1. Preheat oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.
    2. To make filling, peel, core and cut apples into six pieces. Cut each piece into 5mm/¼in thick slices.
    3. Heat butter in saucepan. Add apples and gently sauté.
    4. Add sugar and cinnamon. Continue stirring until apples are just cooked.
    5. Add blackberries to apples and stir very gently.
    6. To make the topping, lightly rub butter into flour and sugar until crumbly.
    7. Spoon apples and blackberries into shallow, oval 23cm/9in ovenproof dish. Sprinkle crumble mixture over top until fruit is just covered.
    8. Place in oven for 10-30 minutes or until light golden brown. Serve.

    Blackberries are great, cook them with a few spoons of sugar to make a really nice compote, take only the really ripe ones, and put it on vanilla icecream! Very easy and delicious.

    I grew up with them, syrup wasn't as common as blackberry jam, couldn't tell you how to do it though!

    Alright, I'll try to hunt them down. Might be in a cookbook so unless I can find it online, I'll have to transcribe.

    Okay, here goes. Summer Pudding with Rum Whipped Cream Recipe : Ina Garten : Food Network

    Turns out this recipe doesn't actually have any blackberries. Just blues, raspberries, and strawberries. Doesn't mean you can't change it around to incorporate the blackberries though. Substitute some blackberry liqueur for the Framboise in the recipe and you're good. Or better yet, make your own blackberry liqueur! (By the way, if you don't feel like buying a big jug of Framboise, pick up a mini-bottle. It's more than enough for the recipe.)

    ^ Thanks, KB. When I saw pudding, I started thinking of custard sauce...

    I don't know why I cook all this stuff as I don't have a sweet tooth and give it all away. I wonder if the compote would go well as a side for a meat dish?
    BG, don't start on jelly. I hate that cheesecloth sieving part.

    Delicious, too, with a serving of yoghurt over them for breakfast. Simple and healthy.
