Anything else we need to know about blackberries first?
Blackberries have an exciting, rich history, dating back aeons! It’s not easy for us to trace blackberries back through the years because they have adapted and proliferated throughout the entire world. Most prolific in northern temperate climates, these deep purple fruits are cousins of the raspberry.
The first records of cultivated blackberries began when Judge Logan cross-bred blackberries and created the Loganberry in California in the 1880s. Until then it seems that they were only found in the wild. I hope that you live somewhere where you can forage blackberries in the wild. If not, then be sure to find your local farm shop varieties.
Health benefits of blackberries according to studies
As you make your blackberry recipes, you’ll be pleased to know that these little wild fruits have lots of health benefits. Not least they are full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. However, if you dig a little deeper, it seems that blackberries have been used medicinally for a long time. This is especially true in the olden days when we relied on herbal medicine. Potions were used for diarrhoea, dysentery, healthy gums, whooping cough and a whole host of things.
Medicinally blackberries are known for their anti-cancer properties. You can find out more information from this PubMed-cited study here:

1. Gluten-free Apple & Blackberry Pie
Oh my goodness. This gluten-free blackberry & apple pie is currently one of our favourite recipes and we can’t get enough of it. The clever pastry is insanely delicious with a melt-in-the-mouth shortbread-like pastry. It holds together incredibly well and is a very special treat in late summer as the nights start drawing in.
2. Blackberry No-Churn Vegan Ice Cream
The no-churn blender method is perhaps the easiest way to create this blackberry ice cream for yourself at home. It is surprisingly simple to make and requires only 3 ingredients. The only equipment that you need is a blender.
3. Blackberry Smoothies
The thing I do most with my locally foraged blackberries is making blackberry smoothies with them. I pick a load during the peak of blackberry season and keep putting them in the freezer until I can’t fit any more in. That means for months I get to make the most delicious, nutritious smoothies. Here are some of my favourite blends along with smoothie-making tips and two yummy gluten-free blackberry recipes…
4. Classic Blackberry & Apple Crumble Recipe
Firstly, I’ve been making this one for as long as I can remember. Secondly, Blackberry & Apple Crumble is one of the easiest dessert recipes that you can make. It serves nicely with that blackberry ice cream above. If you want the fruit part more stew-like just cook it longer or mash it.
5. Blackberry Pie Bars
Let’s start off with this blackberry pie bar recipe. The ingredients are quite simple and you’ll need to grind your oats for the pastry. Grinding your oats only takes a few seconds to do. Otherwise, it’s very easy to make. This is naturally gluten-free if you use gluten-free oats. You get to keep this in the fridge for about three days or pop it in the freezer if you want the stretch them out for longer…
