Blackberry Season

At the tailgate market last Saturday several sellers had pints and quarts of blackberries and they looked soooo yummy! I bought a quart--and then didn't know what I was going to do with them besides just eat them.

Then Kim, from work, gave me her recipe for blackberry cobbler and I tried it on Tuesday. It was super easy and super delicious and I'd show you a picture, but J-Man and I devoured it before the camera could fire up.

Well, okay, not quite that fast, but believe you me, I was not thinking of pictures after I put that first spoonful in my mouth!

So, here's Kim's recipe:

1 qt blackberries

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup flour

1/2 C butter, melted

1 C quick oatmeal

Spread the blackberries out in the bottom of a casserole dish. If the berries are still a little tart, sprinkle them with regular sugar.

In a separate bowl, mix together flour, brown sugar, and oatmeal with the melted butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over the blackberries and place in a 350 degree oven.

Bake 20-30 minutes until blackberries are bubbly and topping is browned. Top with ice cream if desired, but it's just as good without the ice cream. Mmmmmmmm.

I'm experiencing that Pavlovian drool as I type.

Come Saturday morning, I'll be at the tailgate market for more--and this time I'm going to buy enough to freeze so we can have this again post-season.

Oh my but that sounds good! Been forever since I've had blackberry cobbler and it is the season. Maybe our Farmers Market will have some today...or raspberries *VBS* Hugs, Finn

Mom Baker always picked blackberries from her two huge rows of bushes when I came over (this is my stepmom's grandmother) and then she'd put them in a bowl of milk with sugar and we'd eat it like cereal.

my BEST memories of her are tied to blackberries.

now you done throwed a cravin on Diane would say.

never had cobbler made with oats...different.

oh and hubby said that this week's movie "smells like a chick flick" so I guess I'll be watching it alone....

Sounds so wonderful - berry time is the best time *s*

I think I could actually make that! I'll need to buy extra blackberries to insure there will be enough to bake as I am sure I will be "tasting" them from the moment I buy them until they go in the pan.

Sounds really good! Thanks!
