Yeah, I was thinking about adding some pectinase... should probably go get some of that.
And these blackberries are ripe to eat... smaller and sweeter than the ones you get in the store for sure. I had some this summer from a store that were large and beautiful to look at but tasted like rubber. These wild ones are small and ugly but delicious!
This is also my first time using blackberry honey, and it's amazing. I've used varietal clover and orange blossom before, but this stuff is something else entirely. Very smooth-sweet tasting, with deep rich notes like black cherry and almond-amaretto or something... maybe a little darker than most honeys but not super dark.
