My blackberry bush is loaded with berries; some red, most green.
But soon, it will be loaded with ripe berries and we will tackle the job of picking berries from amongst the thorns.
|If my blackberry bush is anything like the 'hedges' that grew around Sleeping Beauty's castle, then Prince Charming was a very tenacious man! That thing is covered with thorns!|
We love fresh berries, blackberry cobbler, and...
Blackberry Crumb Pie!
This pie is yummy! You can substitute blueberries for the blackberries, if desired.
BLACKBERRY CRUMB PIE
1 cup sugar
1 cup sour cream (or plain Greek yogurt)
3 TBSP flour
1/8 tsp salt
4 cups fresh blackberries
1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell
1 TBSP sugar
1/4 cup fine dry breadcrumbs (I usually use whole wheat bread to make my crumbs)
1 TBSP sugar
1 TBSP melted butter
Combine first 4 ingredients; stir well.
Place blackberries in unbaked pastry shell; sprinkle 1 tablespoon sugar over berries.
Spread sour cream mixture over berries.
Combine breadcrumbs, 1 tablespoon sugar, and butter; sprinkle over top.
Bake at 375 degrees for 45-50 minutes or until center of pie is firm.
Cool and serve. Refrigerate leftovers.
What do you like to do with fresh blackberries?
