Blackberry Marinade

We have so many good blackberries this year that we've been reading up a bit on cool stuff to do with berries.   We love The Berry Bible by Janie Hibler.    It's chock full of information about berries of all kinds and what to do with them.  

She has a great section on sauces and after reading some of hers, we started playing around with a recipe of our own for a blackberry marinade.   It was great on pork shoulder chops!

Blackberry Marinade
  • 2 cups blackberries
  • Zest and juice of 1 small lime
  • 1/4 tsp chipotle powder.   [More if you really like chipotle]
  • 2 green onions chopped.
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 T red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 1/8 tsp paprika.  
  • OPTIONAL:   5 T sugar [if you want a sweet marinade]
Put berries in saucepan.  Mash while heating.   Add other ingredients and heat until everything is well mixed and dissolved.   Refrigerate until chilled.    Spoon over meat and let marinate for several hours or overnight.
