In the kitchen the blackberry is a good ingredient in pastries, to make cakes, but it is also common to accompany soups and gazpachos. The dried leaves of brambles can be used in infusions, they have urinary antiseptic, diuretic and slightly laxative properties. They contain mineral salts, vitamins A, B and C and high iron content (so they are very good for preventing and fighting anemia). They also have anticarcinogenic properties and lower bad cholesterol. In our municipality it is not necessary to look far to enjoy these summer fruits, they are proliferating more and more due to the fact that they invade streets with little traffic.
