Blackberry Farm

20130712-190840.jpgOur farm has so many wild blackberry bushes, that I’m considering naming it Blackberry Farm.  I have yet to run this by Chris.  Above is my first blackberry cobbler of the season.  We picked blackberries until almost dark last night.  The recipe is below.  I had to substitute brown sugar as I was out of white.  It still tasted great.  Now to make some homemade vanilla ice cream with the next batch.


1/2 c. butter

1 c. all-purpose flour

1 c. sugar

1 tbsp. baking powder

1/8 tsp. salt

2/3 c. milk

1 (16 oz.) pkg. frozen blackberries, thawed  (I probably used three cups of fresh blackberries, as I like lots of berries.)

Melt butter in a 2 quart casserole. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and milk in a small mixing bowl, mix well. Pour mixture over melted butter, do not stir. Spoon blackberries over batter; do not stir. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until golden brown.

  1. I think “Blackberry Farm” is a lovely name…in fact…I love it so much I am going to package up our blackberries and send them over to you ;).

      1. Yes…MUCH larger and also probably more prickly and invasive and full of broody hens that we can’t reach so you would get the bonus of eggs and chicks…Not sure I could afford the postage though 😉

  2. Don’t know if you know this, but blackberry tea made from small leaves in spring and summer and from the twig ends in autumn and winter, is very good for stopping diarrhea. There used to be a commercial potion sold, but when my boys were young, I made it myself.

    That cobbler looks delicious! I like blackberries in any form . . . ~ Linne
