What is your favorite way to eat them? Do you eat them raw? In a jam? As a cobbler or pie? We have tons of vines and I am trying to decide what to do with the harvest.

I need to go to the farmers market and get some fresh peaches and make one. Yummy! I also found an awesome recipe for a peach cake I want to try.

Quoting SassyWildflower:

i love to make cobblers. SO simple and so good!!

Peach cobbler is my favorite.

Quoting psych_mom:

My oldest keeps trying to steal them when he pickes them with me. I have about 4 cups of fresh berries that I have already picked. I am freezing them so I can save them all up until I figure out what I am going to make with them. I am leaning toward making a cobbler for sure- I've never made one but my mom always did when I was growing up and they were yummy with vanilla ice cream- and maybe some blackberry muffins.

Quoting SassyWildflower:

oh lucky!!!!

when i was little we used to go out to the country and pick them. mom made pie w/ them and we ate them raw. 

when i was in montana in 2006 (my first time up there..lOl) Leland and i would pick these and his mom made wojapi (Lakota berry pudding). I've learned how to make it now & so whenever we have berries (fresh or frozen) i make Wojapi and frybread. Mmmm it's so good.

I think we have around 15-20 vines. I am making sure that I leave a few a lone though so that they reseed for next year.

I love them raw. We have strawberries and we have been freezing those for later use. I wish I had a blackberry vine. My DD loves the, as well
