Blackberries are rich in antioxidants, vitamin C, fiber and minerais.
The fruit of the blackberry shrub is commonly used for cooking, mainly made into pies with sugar or sweetened to be eaten with cereal or yogurt.
They’re also used in fruit-based wines and jams for their deep flavor that complements so many other types of cuisine. Cooking berries will also bring out more of the sugars contained in them by softening the fruit’s tissues. That’s why they work so well when paired with vanilla ice cream!
