Blackberry season is in full swing and these tender sweet berries are on sale all over the place! When I lived in Georgia I loved picking these fresh and snacking on them as I walked through the woods. What I didn’t like was the ticks and chiggers I found attached to me afterwards. Even as an avid gardener and food forager, I admit I prefer to buy these guys! Unfortunately, most of the year you need a cup of sugar to eat conventional blackberries because they are tough, seedy, and sour! End of August and early September is the only true exception to this rule, and we are taking advantage. This simple stove top blackberry apple puree is easy to make and relatively quick. I guarantee your baby will love this recipe, that is, if you can get the older kids to stop eating it!
