A friend of mine from work (Abbie Layne), long retired before I left, gave me some thornless blackberry canes that I rooted and planted. They never did very well where I first planted them, and I was ready to give up and chuck them. Instead I planted them in a raised bed filled with rotted wood chips. This is their 2nd year, and they are producing like crazy.
Today I picked 4.5 cups: enough for blackberry cobbler and 2 cups left over to eat on cottage cheese 🙂
This is the blackberry cobbler recipe I use, except I used half whole grain oat flour, and buttermilk since I had no milk.
There was no complaint. As you can see, I didn’t get the final product picture done before a corner was gone!
