The blackberry season marks the beginning of autumn in Cornwall. My fingers are purple and thorny, my ankles stinging nettle stung and my freezer full of frosted berries. Blackberries are my favourite freezable fruit. Perfect for shaking into a pan for jam or crumbles. They're small, the size of 5p at best, not the 50p sized ones you get in supermarkets.They are harder too and more autumny.
So now my blogs will be tagged as autumn and is if the season knew it was coming we've had the sunniest day in weeks....
