4 easy ways to eat blackberries this autumn
It’s the season for blackberries, and we couldn’t be happier.
Not only do blackberries taste yummy, they also have a ton of benefits: they’re rich in Vitamin C, high in antioxidants and can help your muscles to relax - to name but a few!
Oh, yes - we could all do with a bit more of this beloved berry in our life. Here are some easy ways to enjoy them this autumn and beyond.
1) Blackberry Jam
Getting out of bed on a Monday morning is always a little hard - but blackberry jam serves up a great incentive. Light, delicious and tasty on toast, it’s the perfect morning pick-me-up and very easy to make, too! All you need are Heritage blackberries and sugar - and a sweet tooth, of course.
2) Blackberry Crumble
Crumbles are perfect for cosy autumn nights in - particularly with a little, berrylicious zing. They’re simple to make, easy to keep fresh and provide the ideal solution for using up those leftover blackberries.

Whizz it around until it’s fully blended, then pour into a container and leave in your freezer overnight. Easy, right?
