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've never had them that way. I will have to try it.

Quoting AnGLInterrupted:

My favorite way to eat Blackberries is to drink it in iced tea.  :)


Make sure to strain the puréed blackberry mixture to get rid of seeds and it will be a wonderful addition to minty fresh tea or lemonade. Brewed mint tea can substitute for black tea and fresh mint leaves in this refreshing drink.

INGREDIENTS

  • 5 black tea bags
  • 1/4 cups mint leaves, crushed, 1 leaf per serving reserved for garnish
  • 4 cups boiling water
  • 1/2 cups sugar
  • 6 packages (6 ounces each) Driscoll's Blackberries, reserve 2 to 3 per

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Place tea bags and mint in a heat-proof pitcher. Add boiling water. Steep at least 10 minutes. Strain into another pitcher and discard mint and tea bags. Stir in sugar. Purée blackberries in a blender or food processor; strain though a fine sieve. Discard pulp and seeds. Stir blackberry purée into tea. Taste and adjust sugar as desired. Chill. 

    Serve over ice garnished with mint leaf and 2 or 3 blackberries.

lol! Blackberries are ready in August. And our plum tree is ready at the very end of that month, into early September. That's what I'm most excited about...plums. LOL We have a pear tree too, but I don't pay any attention to it. I've never been a fan of pears. lol
