Blackberry season is winding down but, I still had a generous amount of them in the fridge and I just went out tonight and picked even more. They are so huge with all of the rain we have had. What to do with all those blackberries? There was only one choice...blackberry cobbler.
Mmmm! There is a reason I always braved the briers as a kid and would come home with a bowlful of wild blackberries. This is it! This was a fantastic recipe. It was for blueberries but, I just made it for blackberries. I also added about 1/2 cup more sugar to the berries because I had probably 8 cups of berries in this cast iron skillet.
I also made blackberry syrup with Ball Can-It Forward day.
One of my sons came up with an idea for the blackberry syrup. He suggested we used it in tea to make blackberry flavored iced tea. It was a great idea. I used 1-2 tablespoons of blackberry syrup to a 8 ounce glass of iced tea.
