How do you consume your blackberries?

So far I frozen them and only used for breakfast smoothies. I was told I could make jam from them, but I got quite a bit of jam already and making more soon with the rest of the apples.

How else can you use them?

Currently making blackberry and elderberry wine and also making blackberry whisky.

I haven't made either before, but I hear that blackberry whisky is amazing and even better than sloe gin!

Also, blackberry and apple crumble is wonderful!

I've made blackberry jam, apple and blackberry crumble, apple and blackberry pie, apple and blackberry muffins, breakfast smoothies and hot and cold porridge (mix blackberries with porridge oats over night and in the morning stir in yoghurt to eat). Also had some with ice cream or yoghurt and the occasional sneaky handful straight from the fridge. Yummy!

Here's a good idea for blackberry-based vinegar:

I've tried it and it's good!

Blackberry smoothie is a great idea! I've made blackberry gin and am going to make blackberry and apple crumble next. Yum!

Jelly! I don't like blackberries in jam personally as I find the seeds a bit yucky in texture. So I made some hedgerow jelly with apples, a lemon and loads of blackberries. It is beautiful, looks a beautiful ruby colour in the jar and tastes nice too.

Can't eat them in anything since I picked a load once, left them out to do something else and returned to find literally a thousand tiny maggots crawling about which had emerged from the fruit - yuk! Put me off for life. If only the same thing could happen with pizza or chocolate.
