eat local, grow local
Just made some bramble jelly - my favourite jam/jelly ever. (I shall be hiding the few jars I made jealously from the kids!) After 1 hour picking last night I had 1.8kg of blackberries. If you fancy making some I would pick some soon as with all the rain many of the blackberries are starting to soften and break up (although still a few unripe ones left)
The recipe is very simple there seem to be some small variations but essentially the same:

Have a go, the worst bit is picking them, but at least you can nibble some while you pick!
