September 1, 2008 – Blackberries!

This year’s crop of blackberries has been phenomenal!

The berries this year are large and plentiful – we’ve made jam (my favorite), frozen some, sold many fresh, started soaking some in spirits (brandy, rum, and vodka).┬á We found out last year that whole canned blackberries aren’t worth doing, so we have to find other uses – nothing like homemade blackberry brandy to put you asleep on a cold winter night as an antidote against a sore throat.
