It was a bit too early for blackberries when we went foraging last month but we were itching to try the new Oxo Good Grips 3 piece berry bowl and colander set our friends at OXO sent to us. Our meagre blackberry pickings were topped up with damsons found at my childhood park.
E played with Nana while I went picking then ate most of the blackberries I found!
Some of the blackberries made it home (safely stored in our bowl with it’s clear lid) and we boiled them up with the damsons and an apple to make cordial.
The third piece of the berry bowl set is a colander that sits neatly inside the bowl and has long slits for faster drainage. E tested it for strength and style and it passed with flying colours on both counts.
Next we shelled peas. Not allotment grown sadly but delicious and a lovely way to pass the time on a grey day.
Finally it made a terrific container for E’s treasure from his walk in the gardens with it’s non-slip base, durable plastic and attractive two-tone colour. We’ve come to expect nothing less from the Good Grips range.
