Blackberry

Blackberries are found throughout North America, and this small berry packs a punch of flavor, essential vitamins and minerals, fiber, and antioxidants, making it a miniature superfood.

Quality Check

In terms of color, ripe blackberries range from black to a deep purple, and should be uniform in color. They should be pretty firm and dry, and don’t forget to check the bottom of the container for excess moisture or mold spots.

Preparation

After rinsing, these berries can be made into jams, made part of a fruit or vegetable salad, delicious pies, or just eaten whole.
