Anyone have a good blackberry recipe?
The kids love to go out back and pick the berries. We do have to watch the boy though. He'll eat em all up before we get back to the house. Needless to say he's not allowed to carry the basket anymore!
What'cha want? Jam? Wine? Pie?
I would have to say pie! I never paid enough attention when my mom canned. And I'm still trying to recover from a Jack Daniels incident a couple of week ago. Pie it is!
Ugh... I've had a few run-ins with Mr. Daniels. He and Mr. Cuervo don't get along too well in ::urp:: close quarters.
1 c Sugar
1 c Water
1 c Fresh mint leaves
4 c Blackberries
1 c Red Burgundy wine (sorry Chass)
Lemon juice (opt'l.)
-- for garnish
In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, water and mint. Bring to
a boil, then simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for
about 5 minutes to make a mint-flavored simple syrup.
Strain, discarding mint leaves, and cool. In a food processor,
coarsely puree the berries. Turn into a bowl and stir in the wine
and mint syrup. Taste and add lemon juice if you prefer a tarter
Pour the liquid into an ice cream maker and freeze according to
manufacturer's directions until firm. Garnish with additional berries.

Thanks guys. You can never have too many recipes and cookbooks!
here is a easy way to fix a cobbler
take whatever berries you want and pour into a 9 x 13 pan, then if you want you can put some sugar on them. Pour a cake mix over the top, then pour a melted stick of butter over the top. Cook at 350 for 30 minutes. grab some ice cream and enjoy
I got a good one step1) pick blackberries Step 2) eat blackberries 3) repeat
