  • Blackberry Pie Filling:
    5 cups fresh organic blackberries
    1/3 cup sugar (any kind)
    1/4 cup arrowroot powder (or flour)

    Blend butter and flour using a pastry blender. Add salt. Add water as needed. DO NOT use too much water. Dough should form a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate.
    Preheat oven to 400°F.

    Place the berries in a large bowl. Fold in arrowroot and sugar. Set aside.

    Sprinkle workspace with flour. Remove dough from refrigerator and roll out to about 1/4 inch thick. Place pie pan on top of rolled out dough. Make sure there is at least 1 1/2 inch past the side of the pie pan on all sides.

    Carefully fold dough in half. Place gently in pie pan and unfold.

    Spread filling in pie pan evenly, smoothing out.

    Bake for 30-40 minutes or until bubbling is visible.

    Let cool for 25-30 minutes before serving.

  • Try blackberry short cake. Blend some washed blackberries up to a thick pulpy syrup and sweeten to taste. Then what we used to do is pour it over fresh homemade biscuits. Make the biscuts like normal, but add some extra sugar. You could also top with whipped cream, this is really best with homemade whipped cream. Message me if you want the recipe. It is way better for you than cool whip. Also fruit salad is often overlooked.

  • Go to allrecipes.com and type in "blackberries." Excellent recipes on there. And, you CAN freeze them. Just stick them in a bag or cntainer and freeze...no prep needed. However, they can only be used in syrups and desserts and jellies after that, they will turn mushy when thawed out. We have blackberries by our house too and pick them every year!
