Freeze blackberries – One of the easiest ways to preserve your fresh blackberries is to freeze them for future use.

Make blackberry compote – A compote is a simple fruit sauce that contains fresh bits of fruits, sugar and spices like cinnamon. It’s not as thick as a jam but it’s thicker than syrup. It makes a delicious topping for oatmeal or yogurt. Follow this easy recipe to make your own blackberry compote.

Make blackberry jam – Pectin, a starch found in blackberries, is a key ingredient in jams. It gives jam its consistency. Therefore, you can easily make blackberry jam without adding pectin.
