Blackberries

Just bought some blackberries at Sams's Club. I bought it without having a recipe in mind. I like eating fruit as is but also maybe in a salad or something, any ideas?

We use to have them with a little milk and sugar- very simple dessert.

In cereal is very tasty, or oatmeal. I put blueberries in my oatmeal every day! If you have other fruit in the house you can make a lovely fruit salad.

Of course, there is always blackberry PIE!!!

My mom made blackberry cobbler a lot when I was growing up, with a side of vanilla ice cream. Mmmmmmmm.

Take about two cups blackberries to 1/2 cup sugar, place in pot and boil down to reduce and thicken. Pour over pancakes, waffles, crepes, ice cream, etc.

That's how I like them too. And if you leave them to sit in the milk and sugar for a bit they start to break down and are extra yummy.

My vote is the pie! We had blackberry bushes in our backyard at our old house and I would pick them every morning. They were wild and it was sometimes impossible to keep up with. I made cobblers, pies, froze berries you name it. But the pie was always everyone's favourite! Alas, we have moved and we drove by a couple of month's ago to find out the new owners had removed all the bushes.

I'm mulling over a raspberry pie idea. I keep bumping into a couple gallons of the berries in the freezer and need to use them soon. I am optimistic about the upcoming raspberry season. The drought has cut the season short the past two years. Pie sounds good, with a cream or custard base...
