Plump, juicy blackberries are one of the surest signs that summer is mellowing into autumn. They’re also most people’s introduction to the world of foraging. Blackberries are typically in season from late July until early October, depending on the weather and part of the UK you’re in. So once you’ve spotted ripe blackberries in the hedgerows, grab a tub and go blackberry picking.
Once you’ve gathered your blackberry haul (with the purple-stained fingertips to prove it) it’s time to get creative in the kitchen. With their sweet yet sharp flavour, blackberries are a welcome addition to all sorts of dishes. There’s the traditional cakes and crumbles (and you’ll find our best-ever versions in this round up), but blackberries also make an appearance in ice cream sundaes, tarts, homemade gin and even a couple of savoury dishes.
