Competitive urban blackberry picking.

It’s shocking that blackberries fetch such a high price in the supermarkets when they’re found in abundance all over the UK but I suppose it does make a sunny afternoon all that more satisfying picking a glut of blackberries.

I am fortunate enough to have a large nature reserve opposite my home with a huge supply of blackberries, elderberry and crab apples but there are plenty of other pickers eyeing up your treasure with envy and trying to suss out the best spot to find an unpicked bush. The early bird most definitely catches the worm here!

So I have a lovely batch of blackberries as my reward but what to do with them?
