I don’t often eat pudding after a meal but I enjoy fruit salad or a bowl of berry fruits in the Summer.

At this time of year, I like Autumn fruits - I use a few of the Bramley apples that grow in my garden to make apple crumble with custard, as an occasional treat. Sometimes I add hedgerow brambles. Delicious.

Eira, what on earth are hedgerow brambles?

Hi Sciguy,
I’m not sure what name you use for these fruits in US - blackberries or caneberries, maybe?
They are also called blackberries here but lots of people use the common name of brambles, especially when they are talking about the fruits that grow wild in the field boundary hedges of mixed shrubs.
Blackberries are commercially grown for sale too but I like to pick them when I see them ripening in the hedges - we call it “going brambling”, picking only the ripe black ones and leaving the redder ones to ripen up for the next bramble picker (or birds) to find.

Definitely Blackberries, they are a declared noxious weed down here and property owners are obliged to spray them if they emerge, Council does the road side infestations. Still many people flock to any fruiting patches when they are in season, which won't be to far away. They are cousins to raspberries both growing on thorned stems in tangled patch. Cranberries, the juice of which I was recommended for my bladder well being, are smooth skinned and grow in bogs in a small area of the US of which they are natives. They are considered a super food with many health benefits.

Yes, KayyGee, Cranberries come from a completely different type of plant -
When I looked up to see what terms may be used in US for blackberries, I saw articles which suggested that in some parts of USA, the term caneberries was used refer to blackberries and raspberries as a group rather than the term bramble, because the long arching stems on which they grow are called “canes”

Yes, we call those blackberries. When we say brambles, we are referring to a rough, tangled, prickly shrub...

I have apple crumble and clustered at the avenue restaurant only, not allowed it at home so the boss said.
Years ago I made a 2-pint macaroni pudding but soon after my wife and I had an argument, my wife stormed upstairs I went into my shed when we simmered down we both said sorry and looked in the fridge for the milk pudding, it was just an empty dish, my eldest daughter had eaten it all, she was 6 years old.

i'm still baking apples off my tree.

I fill the centres with marmalade, bake, then coat them with a large dollop of Greek yoghurt just before serving. Delicious!
