The Blackberry

We get plenty of Wild Blackberries around here in rural North Carolina. If you can beat the wild animals and the heat, a leisurely trek through a few fields can yield a pretty nice cache of berries. In addition to the ubiquitous pie there are a few unexpected things you can do with your bounty. After scouring the web for a bit, I discovered that the blackberry is just as versatile as it is tart and sweet:
