Flavor of the Week: Mountain Blackberry

Posted by wadmin on Monday, June 18, 2018



If you live in the Pacific Northwest, you’re pretty much required to like blackberries. They’re everywhere in late summer (or earlier in hot years like this one is promising to be). Our native plant, the trailing blackberry, is also known as the the Pacific blackberry or the Northwest dewberry, and the Mountain Blackberry. It conjures up images of happy bears eating berries in the sun and happy people eating bowls of froyo at Frenzi.

The berries are delicate and tender, small and sweet, but still tart; they taste like the bullying variety of blackberry finally got schooled by a raspberry. They’re not that ostentatious shiny black, and they have much smaller, less teeth-sticking-in seeds. The juice runs blood red. They ripen earlier, as in now, but the season lasts only a month or so. Come into Frenzi for a taste of our delightfully tart mountain blueberry frozen yogurt today!

Try it with your favorite fruit and candy toppings.
