The blackberries from the allotment are so fat and juicy that they taste of blackberry wine.
I picked enough for several crumbles,
Or a big blackberry and almond cake.
Or should I defer gratification
And make blackberry vodka?
Decisions, decisions. The Foragers' transparency code
(Section 1, Urban blogger : Type D, easily distracted) decrees that having publicly declared said blackberries,
They shall not be left to go mouldy in the fridge.
Although this has happened in other years.

What a delicious dilemma. Do you have freezer space?

Tiny kitchen, no freezer, Sue! I'm feeling very drawn to the diet option ie the blackberry vodka. And maybe a crumble if there's some left.

The blackberry and almond cake would get my vote!

My neighbours are back from Tennessee and brought me some Huckleberry jam. The only Huckleberry I've ever heard of is Finn!

Darlene, whichever I make I'll need to get up to the shops - no almonds, no vodka!

Vodka! It is reasonably priced in Aldi. I have just bought some to pour over the Raspberries I bought at the same time, they were £1.00 cheaper than at Tesco for the same weight.

No Aldi around here, Toffeeapple. In the end, I made blackberry whisky; recipe says leave it for a year, but I expect I'll be tasting it for Christmas.
