|This is one of the many blackberry bushes in bloom.|
My nephew was quick to remind me to only pick the purple
colored berries and not the red ones!
When I was done picking, I had almost a gallon Ziploc bag full. You can see in the picture above that as soon as I was home, I washed and cleaned them and made my hubby take my picture! He thought I was nuts, but I felt like I had hit the jackpot of fresh blackberries. I thought about making a recipe or jam with them right away, but decided to freeze them for later instead.
Whenever you put items in the freezer, a rule of thumb is to label the freezer bag with what it is and the month and year you're freezing it.
