Picking blackberries


We went to see if there were any blackberries to pick... a bit early; but we still found heaps. Along the small roads here, among the pine trees, it is easy to find the bushes. I love standing there in the sun, listening to the crickets and concentrating to avoid the thorns...

We ate most of them straight away but I made a simple jam of the rest, just add the equivalent of the berries in sugar, some lemon zest and a vanilla stick and boil for 30 min. Lovely with vanilla icecream....
