Chef, author, and "vegetable shaman" Steven Satterfield shares his appreciation for blackberries, how to tell them apart from raspberries, and a cold brining method to get the most out of them this summer.
Summer is all about berries for me. They are just bursting with color, juices, and flavor, they're sort of the jewel tones of the hot weather. All berries are filled with lots of vital nutrients, and those deep, dark colors are indicators of those nutrients. In particular for berries, it's the anthocyanins, which are really vital for vascular health, blood vessels and such.
