Facts about Blackberries:
Did You Know?
Blackberries have one of the highest antioxidant levels of any fruit. They’re also rich in vitamin C and fiber, which have been shown to help reduce the risks of certain cancers. Blackberries are low in calories and carbohydrates and have no fat, which makes them popular in low carb and low calorie diets.
How to Choose:
Blackberries should have a rich, deep purple-y black hue. Pass up berries with hulls attached, as this indicates premature picking. Check them for mold, and bypass containers that are sticky or stained.
Place your unwashed blackberries in a single layer on a plate and cover them loosely. Then place them into the refrigerator, where they’ll last for two to three days.
