Suggestions for a blackberry amuse bouche?

We're doing a multi-course dinner for extended family this summer, and we'd love to work some of my MIL's blackberries into an amuse bouche (she'd get a HUGE kick out of it!). Any suggestions?
So far, the best ideas I have are either to make a blackberry-balsamic sauce for a bite of meat, or a blackberry BBQ sauce (potentially as a ravioli filling).
I'm thinking duck (pan-seared, or confit) with thyme, and a blackberry-Cabernet sauce, or a gastrique.
Hmmm--I'm wondering about pickled blackberries. I've never tried it, but I love pickled cherries. Wondering about a dab of chicken liver (or other) pâté on crostini or a round of radish or cucumber,topped with a pickled blackberry or two?
If not for the amuse, though, blackberries could be incorporated into almost any of the other courses if they aren't set in stone.
