Blackberries :)

These are not the best blackberries I have ever picked – far from it. But I fought tooth and claw for these at Enoch’s Berry Farm, which is packed with u-pick customers this season. The berries are flying off the vines and I was lucky to get any at all. I almost gave up and went home, to tell the truth.

So these blackberries are more suited for cooking than for eating out of hand. Make them into jam or a cobbler, or put the bag into the freezer and enjoy them in smoothies.

Cobbler Topping
I make this topping and use it with different fruits to make quick and easy cobblers. I adapted this recipe from a fruit pie topping in the community cookbook that was sold to raise funds to build the Fouke Veterans Memorial Park. I love that kind of cookbook!

1 c flour
1/2 c sugar
1 stick butter, softened

Mix with a fork until crumbly, then pour over berries (fresh or frozen) in an 8×8 pan. Bake at 325F until bubbly and browned, maybe 30-35 minutes.
Enjoy!
