The blackberries are very ripe now. I've been out today to pick a bucketful to make my 2nd batch of bramble jelly. The first batch was made last week - 6 jars in total. Today's batch is bigger. It is currently being strained. I'll make it into jelly tomorrow. The pulp will then be pressed through a sieve and the resulting fruit puree will be added to our sweet mince which I shall be making shortly. The hens will get what is left of the pulp that won't go through the sieve.
