Over the last few weeks I’ve been out harvesting the bounty of the local hedgerows, in particular the blackberries which grow almost everywhere around us. I’ve picked pounds and pounds (or even kilos and kilos if you want to be a bit more modern) of these.
Many will probably be made into blackberry jelly, but for now I satisfy myself with the fantastic smell of the ripe fruit.
I’ve also picked a nice crop of crab apples. These will definitely be turned into crab apple jelly, to be served with roast dinners throughout the winter.
