Blackberries

Known as the “Cabernet of Berries” for their complex, rich earthy flavor, blackberries are very good for you. Blackberries rank near the top of all fruits for antioxidants and are a great source of vitamin C, manganese, and dietary fiber. Try mixing some blackberries with yogurt or just eat them plain as a snack.

Selecting Blackberries

Blackberries are highly perishable; they should only be purchased one or two days prior to use. Choose berries that are firm, plump and deep in color. Avoid those that are soft, mushy or moldy. Make sure that The berries are not packed too tightly in their container, as this may cause them to become crushed and damaged. Make sure the container has no signs of stains or moisture.

Care & Handling

Blackberries will keep fresh in the refrigerator for one or two days. Make sure not to leave berries at room temperature or exposed to sunlight for too long, as this will cause them to spoil. When you are ready to use your berries, give them a gentle rinse.

You can easily freeze berries – just wash, pop them into a ziplock bag, and remove as much air as possible. The frozen berries will keep for many months.
