I’ve picked 6lbs of blackberries. What do you do with so many berries bearing in mind this is just the beginning of at least 4 weeks of this repeat bounty?

The first lot went into the pot to be cooked with sugar and then frozen to make lovely pie fillings when the days are dark and cold outside.

Please, oh please could you share any ideas, recipes and advice you have? I’ll be very stuck because at the moment the pie filling and jam are the only two ideas I can think of. Wine would be another one but I have no idea how that’s done.
