    Ciaoa tutti,

    :)

    Qui si parla di una torta alle more.

    Il nome della torta è "Brumble pie".

    "Brambles include any creeping stem berries, such as boysenberries, blackberries, loganberries and youngberries."

    Ho difficoltà a tradurre, perché, di fatto, si tratta di vari tipi di mora (per lo più ibridi tra lamponi e more).

    Pensavo di semplificare così:

    "Per mora si intende qualasiasi tipo di bacca selvatica"??
    E' questo il senso??

    Mi sembra inutile elencare tutte le tipologie, visto che non abbiamo un nome preciso.

    Per "boysenberry" ho trovato questo.
    Per "loganberry" questo.
    Per "youngberry" questo.

    Gira, gira, sempre la stessa cosa: mora-lampone.

    Che ne dite??

    Grazie mille a tutti.
    :)

    Creeping stem means that it has a stem that crawls along the ground (Rampicante).

    Forse allora sono bacche selvatiche?

    Grazie mille, Charles!!

    Not necessarily, Raf. They may have originally been wild but nowadays they can be found cultivated. Some people even grow them in their gardens. I would translate that as more rampicanti.

    I wonder if we would say "more rampicanti" in a recipe.

    And here it's "creeping berries".

    This recipe is too tough.
    :)
    Thank youuuuuuuuuu!

    Raf, creeping stem berries are berries that come from a plant that has stems that creep along the ground, as opposed to berries that grow on trees like the mulberry. The recipe requires berries such as boysenberries, blackberries, loganberries and youngberries which fall into that category (creeping stem), and not berries like the mulberry (which grows on a tree).
