Dear Food Editor:
With a nip of Fall in the air, can football, tailgating, and fan parties be far behind? Why not make some berrylicious updates to old standbys that will not only offer new tastes but a serious nutritious boost to your dishes? If you can’t imagine watching the big game without salsa and pulled pork, we want you to try adding the crisp, fruity taste of blackberries to these dishes for a whole new experience.
Here are two of our all time favorite bar recipes, both easy to prepare and guaranteed to start your day off with a smile.
- Pulled Pork Sliders with Marionberry Mojito Sauce
- Sliders have become a new tailgating staple and our Marionberry Mojito Pork version is definitely something to cheer about. Slow cooked Cuban-style pork is baked until it is fork-tender, then slathered with delectable Marionberry Mojito sauce for a South American flavor that you won’t want to miss.
- Blackberry-Citrus Table Salsa
- Courtesy of Nancy Zaslavsky. It has all the peppy punch of traditional salsa but adds the great sweet/tart taste of blackberries to brighten the dish. The color combination alone will bring your guest back for more.
Blackberries are well known for their important nutritional benefits. Loaded with vitamins, minerals and fiber, blackberries help provide important parts of a healthy diet. For more recipes and to find out more about Oregon Raspberries and Blackberries visit other sections of this web site.
