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:

Blackberry Spinach Salad

Blackberry Port Sauce With Pork.

Blackberry Gastrique, Roasted Baby Fennel and Arugula

Blackberry Fizz

Blackberry Mustard

Southern Blackberry Shrub

Grilled Chicken Polenta with Nectarine Blackberry Salsa

Blackberry Avocado Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette

Mixed Berry Gazpacho
