Even though I will be having a nil harvest from the trees in the garden this year, the hedgerows this year will be full of blackberries. This bowl of large juicy ones is the first of the season picked not far from home.
I've been buying plums, apricots, peaches, and nectarines from the market for preserving....and this week the first of the English cooking apples. I've made beetroot chutney to the same recipe as last year. This one teams up very well with pear, walnut and cheese salad.
