Blackberry Maple Pancake Topping


Fresh blackberries are in season now, if you are lucky enough to have them growing wild in your area you should venture out to pick some of these tasty, nutritious berries. Berry picking is becoming a lost tradition, which is really a shame because it’s a fun, low cost, healthy activity and can provide you with inexpensive fruit. Who doesn’t like free food? If you are like me and blackberries don’t grow in your area they are now often available in the produce section of many supermarkets. What can you do with your blackberries? Eat them fresh as a snack or for desert, and whole lot more. This blackberry maple topping recipe is a nice change of taste on your pancakes, waffles or ice cream.
