I think of blackberries as a well earned fruit. The labour involved in picking these tasty treats, and the injuries the brambles cause, makes the whole process an adventure.
but once you get them, you need to use them! Left over blackberries turn to mush. And they mold pretty darn quick too, so if you have a bucket left over that you just can’t fit in your belly… this is my suggestion!
