Blackberry Dumplings

When I was a kid, my Grandmas made this with blueberries. I had totally forgotten about this treat until I meet my lawyer and he ask me if i can make it and give him a lesson about it.

This is one of my go to southern comfort desserts when winter starts getting me down!! I love picking blackberries in the summertime and turning them into this great dessert as well! So it is not just for those cold winter months. I have a few tricks in this video to help you make the best, most delicious blackberry dumplings that you have ever tasted.

Some Benefits of blackberry:

1- Rich in vitamin C

One cup of blackberries contains 30.2 milligrams of vitamin C, which is half the recommended daily value, and thus helps:

Formation of collagen in bones, connective tissues and blood vessels.

Wound healing and skin regeneration.

– Increase the absorption of iron in the body.

– Prevention of colds.

Protection from cancer.

2- It contains a high percentage of fiber

Lack of fiber is associated with digestive issues such as bloating, constipation, and stomach pain, and increases the risk of heart disease.

Eating fiber helps:

– reduce cholesterol.

Promote regular bowel movements.

– Controlling the level of sugar in the blood.

Feeling full for a longer period.

3- Vitamin K

This vitamin is the reason for not bleeding profusely at the wound, as it helps blood clotting, and vitamin K also plays a role in preventing osteoporosis and fracture.

Just one cup of blackberries provides nearly 29 micrograms of vitamin K, more than a third of the recommended daily value.

4- A high percentage of manganese

Manganese helps healthy bone development, strengthens immunity, prevents osteoporosis, controls blood sugar, reduces epileptic seizures, metabolizes carbohydrates, amino acids, and cholesterol, and plays a key role in collagen formation and wound healing.

One cup of blackberries contains 0.9 milligrams of manganese, nearly half of the recommended daily value.

5- Promoting brain health

Eating blackberries improves brain health, reduces inflammation, and prevents memory loss due to aging because it contains antioxidants.

6- Promoting oral health

A 2013 study confirmed that blackberries have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that cause oral and gum diseases and tooth decay.
