Wild blackberries?

anakalia | Jul 21, 2009 09:50 AM

I'm not sure if this is the right forum to post this question in - but here goes.
I'm currently living in France and have noticed that the forest around our village has all sorts of blackberry bushes. I'd love to go pick some and make a nice tart or something, but I"m a little hesitant about picking wild berries.

They look just like normal blackberries - like raspberries, but black - and I can't find any info on the Internet about anything that looks similar being poisonous -- but do you know of anything? Is this a good idea?

Secondly, then, does anyone have an idea for a simple summer blackberry dish?
