1. Blackberry & Cabernet Caipirihna
Made with cachaca, a spirit derived from sugar cane, the caipirinha is like a beefed-up, mintless mojito. This one tosses blackberries, fruit juice & Cabernet in the mix, making it almost a lighter red sangria with a hint of something tropical.
2. Mixed Greens Salad with Sugared Walnuts, Blackberries & Feta
Sometimes the evening calls for a light, but satisfying salad. This one fits that bill—make plenty of the sugared walnuts though, you’ll want them with cocktails later this week.
3. Mustard-rubbed Pork with Blackberry-mustard Sauce & Spiced Oven Fries
Tenderloin, blackberries & mustard are so good together that you almost think you should never see one without the others. Combine in this dish with a deeply aromatic spice-rub, and all bets are off.
4. Coconut Panna Cotta & Stewed Blackberries
Delicate, creamy coconut panna cotta, enhanced with tangy buttermilk, gets a burst of flavor from juicy stewed blackberries.
5. Blackberry Pie Bars
Stash your orchard haul into these crumbly, juicy, jammy bars that are even easier than pie.
