Blackberries

One of my favourite childhood memories is of gathering enough blackberries to make a blackberry and apple crumble – the best dessert in the world!

 

All berries are power packed super foods. Blackberries are high in vitamin C and anti-oxidants and really do help to keep your body healthy. Blackberry leaves, as well as the fruits, have been used medicinally for many years. Blackberry leaf tea is sold commercially as a tonic and pick-me-up – organic fresh leaves from your garden could be even better!
A small cup of fresh blackberry leaf tea every day will help build the immune system and in turn help prevent colds and flu bugs.

There are thornless varieties available now that you can grow in a small back garden. Grab this guide to Growing Blackberries – I’ve included the best dessert recipe too 🙂
