Blackberry Overload!

DH went out to the farms to get us some corn today and came back with a surprise for me - fresh blackberries - because he knows how much I love them. And I do! They are big, delicious, sweet, juicy berries.

I'm just not sure that I love 3 heaping quarts of them that are now filling the fridge because there are many more of them than I can possibly eat fresh. Any favorite blackberry ideas or recipes?

Freeze them in single layer on cookie sheet then put them in bag in freezer makes it easy to pull out handful to garnish cakes or desserts with.

Freeze in bags for cobbler or pie or they can be cooked an used for jam later (instructions on sure jell box.

They can be used in pie or cobbler now as well.

Thank you! A cobbler is in the oven right now, scones are planned for morning, and most of the rest are in the freezer. My nails are stained with blackberry juice but I'm happy!!!

I love blackberries! I'm jealous :P cobbler and scones both sound delicious. I also love to grab a handful and mix them into some Greek yogurt and honey... hmmmm

We went to the U-pick farm and DH for corn and DH found the thornless blackberry bushes and got carried away. I ended up with 8 quarts.

We have been enjoying blackberry cobbler, pancakes and over ice cream ,the freezer is full.

My favorite thing to do with Blackberries is a Blackberry and Peach Cobbler.

Now I want some...

I have some fresh blackberries in the freezer and was thinking of making muffins with them but your scones sound so much better. I think I will do that instead. Thanks for the idea.

Thanks for all the extra ideas! I had a big bowl with yogurt for breakfast and the cobbler after dinner. So yummy! I'm looking forward to both my scones tomorrow (delicious looking Big Sur Bakery recipe) and the coming months of having these treasures in the freezer.
