07-11-08 Blackberry Soomthie!
I found some nice blackberries in the garden and made this smoothies with my new kitchen gadget, the Oster Milkshake Blade. It works super nice!
You might say "Oh why do you grow blackberries in your yard?" That's how I felt when we first planted it, but I grew to love it. The thing about growing blackberries is you need to aggressively manager it. I must admit, I am still working on it.
These are not ordinary blackberries, they are the Oregon Marion Berries. They are big and juicy, very flavorful. I'll be making blackberries jams when I get more of them...Meanwhile, I will enjoy the fresh ones in smoothies, pies or on ice creams.
