Project: Blackberry Recipe

Updated on March 21, 2011

Spring is here and that means it's time to dig out your walking shoes and start visiting your local farmer's market to find some great deals on local produce.

Blackberries typically take a backseat to the more popular strawberries and blueberries, but blackberry dishes can be just as sweet, juicy, and delicious! Keep an eye out for fresh blackberries at your farmer's market or grocery store. Some areas may also have pick-your-own blackberry fields which can make a great outing for the whole family! If you enjoy gardening, you can even look at growing your own blackberries.

I've collected several delicious recipes here for you to add to your collection! As the weather gets warmer, try to incorporate more fresh fruit and berries into your diet, and experiment with a few great new recipes you may not have tried before.

      The whole wheat muffin recipe looks delicious. We pick our own berries in season here, not until early summer.
