BLACKBERRIES (which are actually deep purple, but DEEP PURPLEBERRIES is a mouthful) are traditionally known as the main attraction in cobblers and pies but are capable of so much more! Perfect for a stand-alone snack and just as ideal in salads, marinades, breakfasts and desserts, these sweet-tart treats always deliver smiles.
Just like raspberries, blackberries are quite fragile. When shopping at your local grocery store, look for deep, evenly-colored berries with a nice sheen. Avoid dented, bruised berries and watch out for moisture and leakage at the bottom of the container.
Storage & Serving Success
- Refrigerate blackberries for 1 to 3 days in your refrigerator
- Make sure to keep them dry and eat them as soon as possible after purchase
- Rinse under cool gentle water immediately prior to serving
- Convenience rules! No cutting or peeling required
