Why I Love This Recipe

Pickn' blackberries, I remember well. Thorns & snakes!! We always had a snake dog , they saves us many a time. But , oh my, the berries was well worth the trouble. In jams & cakes, or just by themselfs on fresh out of the oven biscuits. We'd eat as many as we put in our buckets.

And of course the 4th of July blackberry cobbler.
