Bramble

Looks like a black raspberry and has a juicy texture, with many seeds, and a fragrant delicate flavour. Similar to dewberries which grow in less prickly bushes and have a blue bloom like that of plums. Cultivated varieties of blackberry are large, juicy and often seedless, and the flavour is watery and indistinct. Wild blackberries that grow in the hedgerows are rarer but worth hunting out. Always wash them well and avoid those which grow near to the ground. Very tasty when stewed with apple or pear, and they go well with soft, fresh goat's cheese.
