Last of the Blackberries

Blackberry2 We went blackberry picking, because we’ve decided to offer up a special of Baileys ice cream and Dingle blackberry sauce for the Food Festival. Blackberry picking is one of the most relaxing activity I can think of.

BlackberryI went with my partner and the little baby, and Róisín gave us enough time without fussing to gather a kilo or so. I hope that will be enough!

At least we’ll have some other specials in case we run out.

A couple of years ago I posted a recipe for blackberry coulis (here). Last night I cooked the blackberries for much longer and didn’t strain them at all.

I have to say I liked it better that way.

    I went blackberry picking recently and made blackberry ice cream based on a recipe from Ben and Jerry’s ice cream book. Still have tons of berries left so your recipe for the coulis definitely appeals to me.

    Did Róisín keep trying to grab the brambles? Every time I go picking with Little Missy in her sling she’s got the hands out try and grab at least a thorny bramble, at worst a nettle. With having to keep a good eye on her, the best blackberries are always out of my reach these days!

    She kept well away! Divide and conquer – I did most of the picking. :)

    How lucky you are to be so near to such beautiful surrounds. I have plenty of berries in the freezer, the coulis sounds a great use for them.
