Stealing natures free blackberries


Normally blackberries are in their prime in early August, but with our cold winter they are just starting to come around now.  After a little bit of hunting my partners and I found a few good stretches of bushes and had out one gallon bucket of blackberries filled in no time.


In the past I have created the following with these seemingly never-ending supply of free produce:

Blackberry Pie
Blackberry Jam


This year I went with something with much less sugar and made a great low-carb blackberry ice cream recipe.  At just 188 calories per serving, 7 grams of carbohydrates, and 4 grams of sugar…this is a good alterative to other desserts in our freezer and much more tasty.

    We have lots of blackberries where I live to but no way to make ice-cream. Your’s looks delicious. I wish I could reach into the picture and eat some!

    This post brought back memories of when I was young and lived in Raytown, Missouri. Me and my friends used to collect them from bushes that grew along the roadside.

    Just yesterday we made blackberry juice concentrate. Mix it in with some 7UP/Sprite and it makes a great drink. (Or just add water and a sweetener for normal juice).
