It is time for the Gluten Free Dairy Free Menu Swap! I’ll be hosting this week’s swap and blackberries are the theme. Due to our planting zone I don’t have any true blackberry plants (boo-hoo!), but I do have several black raspberry plants. This year they look like they are going to be loaded with berries! Woo-hoo! Around here we like eating our blackberries straight out of hand, but also enjoy them on salad, made into a syrup or jam, in breakfast cookies and in quick breads and muffins and in Lemon Berry Donut Holes. How do you like your blackberries?
