355Days ShezPhoto #11 Dried Blackberries

Blackberries Dry on the Vine

The most delicious blackberry ever is a non-native and invasive specie called the Himalayan Blackberry. In August on a hot sunny day you can smell the berries in the air. That’s the day to grab a pail, head out into the heat, and dodge the nasty thorns that attempt to impale you. The sweet juicy berries are large over an inch or more in diameter. We eat handfuls of them while we pick. Once picked the berries have a very short shelf life. Those that make into the bucket need to be eaten right away with ice cream, or made into a berry pie or jam. As fall comes on they wither and dry and they look like these. No more until this the next August.
