buy sour blueberry
buy sour blackberry, You may have noticed that some blackberries taste bitter, while other summer berries like raspberries or blueberries don’t. The stem end and core in the blackberries contains the bitter compounds.
Adding sugar or fat (like heavy cream / whipped cream) balances out the bitterness,
and salt reduces our ability to taste it. The bitter compounds also break down with heat, so a pork tenderloin simmered with blackberries will taste less bitter, as will a blackberry pie.
Why are blackberries bitter?
The amount of time the blackberry was allowed to ripen affects how bitter or sweet it will be. Unripe berries start out bitter and that lessens as they ripen on the vine. When picked fully ripe they are very sweet with no trace of bitterness.
Unripe blackberries often make their way into grocery stores because they ship better and store longer (two things grocery stores prioritize). Once the berries are picked, they no longer get sweeter (or less bitter). However, they’ll still have their characteristic dark color, making it nearly impossible to tell how they’ll taste just by looking at them.
Farmers markets usually have better quality than the grocery store
(as they don’t need to be picked unripe to endure shipping).
Most sellers at farmers markets also let you sample the fruit, so
you know exactly how sweet they will be before buying. buy sour blackberry
