Three recipes to incorporate blackberries into your cooking

Do you desire both a sweet and acidic flavour at the same time? Put a blackberry in your mouth and let this little fleshy fruit paint your mouth with flavour. Where to find it? Perhaps in an old market, or if the city is your home then in the modern supermarket, or there are those of us who are lucky enough to find it in wild form. In Africa and Europe, blackberries are well known. However in the new world, as an introduced species, they are fighting against the spread of these bushes.

When it comes to the table, no one dares to speak badly of it; You might also know it as blackberry or Rubus if Latin is your mother tongue. Give it a try in your cooking today and make it the star of any of your dishes.

This is an important fruit, not only for its commercial importance in some economies, or the wide variety of preparations made from it (jams, soft drinks and juices), but also because of some of its nutritional properties. Blackberries are an excellent source of vitamin K, which helps blood to clot and maintenance of your bones, vitamin C, dietary fibre and Manganese. It is also a good source of vitamin E, which has antioxidant properties, and some other micronutrients such as Folio, magnesium, Potassium and Copper.

Here are three dishes containing blackberries that we hope you will use again and again in your kitchen:

  3. Place in popsicle moulds, half-filling them with blackberries and the rest with the creamy mixture you prepared previously.

  4. Insert wooden sticks into molds, making sure that they are straight.

Mmm... those blackberry popsicles sound absolutely delicious! I'll definitely be trying them when the warmer weather comes.

Where I'm from in Scotland, blackberries grow absolutely everywhere because there is a lot of rain and so they grow big and juicy. Unfortunately in much warmer climates, they kind of shrivel in the heat as there isn't as much moisture for the blackberry bushes to feed on. However, a great natural resource that everyone loves!

Wow!! again! more great recipes! I live in Oregon where blackberries grow like weeds. We NEVER but them in the store, because once August hits we can't pick them fast enough. I'll definitely keep these recipes and make some delicious popsicles and stuffed chicken. Thanks!

Blackberries are so good! When they are ripe, they are the right balance between sweet and sour. The salad is definitely a must-try! It seems to have an interesting combination of flavors. I would like to make the ice cream too, maybe next week with my friends.
