A blackberry is also called a bramble because it grows on thorny bushes, or brambles. The blackberry is the largest of the wild berries.

Blackberries are cultivated in the United States from about May through August depending on the region.

Fresh blackberries are best used immediately, but may be refrigerated lightly covered for up to two days.

This recipe is a fast and easy cobbler that is delicious and definitely needs a scoop of vanilla ice cream served with it. E-mail me at brencook4u@aol.com.

Ingredients:

2 1/2 cups fresh blackberries, washed and drained

1 cup sugar

1 cup flour

2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1 cup milk

1 stick butter, melted

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Combine blackberries and sugar and let sit for 20 minutes (This procedure is called macerating – it allows the juices of the blackberries to be sweetened by the sugar.)

2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

3. Sift flour, baking powder and salt together. Add milk and melted butter and mix by hand until all ingredients are incorporated. Batter will be a little clumpy.

4. Lightly spray an 8×8-inch baking dish and pour batter into dish, smoothing it out to length of pan.

5. Pour macerated berries on top to distribute evenly on top of batter.

6. Bake in preheated oven for about 45-60 minutes or until lightly golden. Remove from oven and let rest for 25 minutes to set before serving.

7. Serve warm or at room temperature with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Enjoy.
