To drink: a delicious trick is to serve cold apple juice or cider with a splash of Mûre (the blackberry equivalent of Cassis. Basically, this is an apple blackberry kir).

Blackberries go well in a sharp-sweet sauce for game.

Scatter them on porridge and puddings.

Macerate in Mûre or Cassis and icing sugar, chill, and serve with cream or icecream.

Blackberry and apple is a classic pairing you can put to good use in jam, pies or crumbles.

Stew cooking apples with blackberries and sugar, or stuff the apples with the berries and bake; serve with thick cream.

Chop a few chillis into your blackberries before making jam, and you have chutney.
