Well this evening my neighbor called me over. I walked around their shed and I could not believe my eyes! There was a massive blackberry patch, the biggest I have ever seen. The following picture does not even do it justice because A. I took it on my Ipod and B. the picture doesn't even close to show the whole patch.
You can't even tell it here but all that green is covered in hundreds of berries. My neighbor is going to show me how to make her blackberry cobbler. I am so excited.
I was going to make a jam, but she said these berries are too seedy. Wish I could figure a way to sift those out, but they are so tiny. We filled a whole 3.5 gallon bucket in just a little bit. Does anyone know of any other good recipes to use blackberries for? I get sad thinking of all the years I have not picked them. Most people around here can't stand them because they are sticker bushes and just look at them like weeds, not me!! We have some along our back fence, but I suspect I would have more if my husband hadn't gone crazy with the weed eater, but he won't admit it LOL!
