Greek Yogurt with Wild Blackberry Preserves

One of our favorite Greek vacation house pastimes is making preserves out of the abundant fruit harvest from the grounds around the house. The wild blackberries that grow along the road and footpaths are large and sweet. If you follow a general recipe here and your preserves turn out just a little liquidier than "set", they make a great topping for the super-dense Greek yogurt. In summer, we spend mornings lingering a bit over breakfast because we have such good stuff like this to eat.

Everything is great with Greek yogurt. I loved it drizzled in honey and sprinkled with walnuts!! Not a Greek yogurt to be found here I'm afraid; and straining it in cheesecloth doesn't improve the flavour. I guess I'll just have to return to Greece....
