To make the pickled blackberries, carefully fit your berries into a jar, taking care not to bruise them. A wide mouthed canning jar works well. Reserve 2 or 3 berries for later.
Heat the vinegar, water, and spices in a small saucepan until it comes to a simmer. Turn off the heat and let cool.
Strain the brine, then crush 2 or 3 berries and stir into the brine. Pour the mixture over the berries, making sure all the berries are completely submerged. Add more water if necessary. Cover and let sit for 4 hours.
Put the grapefruit sections in a serving bowl and add the pickled berries, along with a tablespoon or two of the pickling liquid.
Serve with a garnish of lime zest and fresh thyme leaves if you like.
