MAKE YOUR BLACKBERRIES BRILLIANT

Pick your perfect punnet

When buying blackberries, look for plump, deep purple berries. The colour should be dark and consistent and there should not be too many red druplets on the berries. A little juice in the punnet is harmless and will make for sweet and ripe berries. Blackberries are ready ripened when you buy them.

Keep cool

Store blackberries in the fridge, between 2 and 4 °C, as soon as possible after purchase. Keep the punnet upright and handle carefully to avoid bruising.

Rinse & raise

Get the most out of your brilliant berries, by bringing them up to room temperature and washing before devouring. Enjoy your burst of berry goodness.

And don’t forget when it comes to blackberries, the more the berrier.
