First harvest of the year!

2 1/2 lbs of blackberries from our paddocks....yummy!


plan is to turn most into a compulsory blackberry and apple crumble, but a few are going into a

"blackberry and Gingernut Layer" (From Waitrose mag)


300g blackberries

200g caster sugar

finely grated zest of 1/2 lemon

150g ginger nut biscuits

200g cream cheese

1 egg white

200ml double cream



(keep a few blackberries to go on top)


mix blackberries, 2tsb sugar, lemon zest. mix a bit, and leave in a cool place to marinate for 2 hours


bash up the biscuits a bit (plastic bag and rolling pin style). not too much.


Mix the cream cheese with rest of sugar and cream,


beat egg white until it peaks, add to cream cheese mixture


Then, best in sundae glasses, layer, spoonfuls of blackberries, biscuit, cheesey stuff. Repeat and top with cheesey stuff, add a few blackberries and some lemon zest.


Yumtastic! And blackberries, ginger and lemon = Very healthy :wink:

Mmmm, mmmmm, mmmmmm Annie :D ! Sounds divine!! I'm picking some more blackberries from FIL's allotment this week so will have to give that a go! I turned the last lot into Bramble and Apple Curd and Blackberry and Apple Fool. Time for a change, methinks!


Bramble and apple curd and blackberry and apple fool - now they both sound good! Any chance of the recipes? :lol:
