Through Agathe Caudron
No one wants to talk about the place where he picks blackberries, lest there is not enough for everyone … Although everyone has their favorite spot, some places are favorable to picking, near Caen (Calvados). And even if the sky darkened slightly on Sunday, September 26, 2021, showers will be rare in the afternoon. So grab a bucket or two, because even though it’s early fall, blackberries are still present in hedges and brambles.
Where to pick blackberries?
• The bay of Sallenelles: in the paths. In fact, during the 15 km hike, you will have the opportunity to come across blackberries on the trails. Small bonus: you will be able to observe birds by the sea.
Where is it ? Near Sallenelles.
• Along the Orne canal: by traversing the 17 km cycle route, on foot or by bicycle, the vegetation will offer blackberries in this month of September.
Where is it ? On the Greenway from Caen to Ouistreham.
As the orchards are mainly closed on Sundays, you will find blackberries in the pastures but do not forget to ask the farmer for permission!
But wild mulberries are found on the majority of the trails.
What to do with these fruits?
It is so pleasant to eat them during the harvest. But if the basket is full, blackberry jam can be a recipe to explore or replicate.
If there is still some of these fruits left after making the jam, why not make a good blackberry pie to taste it?
