Blackberries are available year-round.

Selection and Storage

When selecting blackberries, look for firm berries that are not overly soft or squishy. Avoid any berries with bruises or mold spots as these can quickly spread to other fruit in the same container. Store fresh Blackberries at room temperature away from direct sunlight, and keep them dry to extend their shelf life. Refrigerating blackberries will slow down the ripening process and help them stay fresh longer. To preserve Blackberries for later use, freeze them on a baking sheet until solid and then transfer the frozen berries to an airtight freezer-safe container. Frozen blackberries will last up to one year when stored properly. They can also be canned or made into jams and jellies.

Health Benefits

Blackberries are also high in vitamins and minerals, making them an excellent source of nutrition. They are a great way to get antioxidant-rich nutrients into your diet. Eating blackberries can help reduce inflammation, boost immunity, and improve digestion. So not only do they taste delicious but provide many health benefits as well!

So if you have access to fresh blackberries, make sure to take advantage of their unique flavor and nutritional value by incorporating them into your favorite recipes. Enjoy the sweet taste of these juicy berries all year long!
