 Autumn time is harvest time for great, fat, juicy blackberries . Blackberries contain an antioxidant known as ellagic acid which is known to prevent cancer and protect and repair skin damage cause by the sun’s ultraviolet rays.Ellagic acid is not damaged by cooking so Blackberry jam and apple and blackberry crumble can also be added to the foods that are good for you. Blackberries are high in fibre, potassium, vitamin C and K but low in calories.
