Blackberries bushes are extremely prolific on our property. The birds love em and spread blackberry seeds ALL over!
Consequently, we are surrounded by ACRES of blackberry bushes. We clear them out of our fields and fence lines as best we can. The rest we eat fresh off the vine. I always freeze several batches too.
I have quite a few blackberry recipes on this blog both sweet and savory. Blackberry are a wonderful late summer harvest. They make so many wonderful dishes.
This Blackberry cobbler recipe in particular is one of our favorite blackberry desserts. I make it a LOT since it’s So EASY!
The sweet moist dough is so yummy and crammed with blackberries all the way through.
Farm to Table Recipes:
Grow your own garden for the best produce like we do or buy from a reputable, local organic farm, farmers market, fruit stand or your local food co-op. .
I really DON’T recommend growing blackberries. They are EXTREMELY invasive. At least they are here in our temperate climate.
If you love blackberries go hunt them in vacant lots, old driveways (like ours), parks, trails and wherever brambles love to grow (watch out for toxic sprays though).
If you get crazy enough to plant them. Find a THORNLESS variety like this. Whacking back our thorny ole blackberry bushes is a blood sport. You won’t enjoy it.
This blackberry dessert is a fast way to enjoy blackberries and use them up. This easy blackberry cobbler is ready to pop in the oven in about 10 minutes not counting blackberry picking time here. 🙂
