Blackberry or Dewberry Cobbler — 24 Comments

  1. I’m Going to steal some berries from one of the sons home when they get ripe. Hubby KILLED all the bushes in Ms!

  2. I looked at moms bushes on her fence today and they are covered in green, half grown berries. She picks them just to snack on now but the neighbors are bad about helping themselves to them.

  3. I’ve still got blackberries in the freezer from last year. I need to get those used up before the new crop comes in, which will be happening pretty soon. Thanks for the bump! (I also need to find someone to help me eat the danged thing. Am I capable of downing a whole cobbler by myself? Yes, yes I am. Prevention is worth those pounds on my hips!)

    • I’m making two cobblers today with my last jars of the fruit I prepared just for cobblers. With the few berries I have left in the freezer, I’m going to make my BW Cordial. YUM!!!

  4. I’m going to have to buy blackberries to try this recipe. 🙁 Unless you plant them here, this is not a place they grow wild. I did pick some really good wild blackberries while down in Costa Rica though!

  5. Berries not ready here yet, but you know I am watching them. Gotta beat the bird’s, coon’s and possum’s. They love them to. Thanks for the recipe. Bill

    • Yes, I do know you’re watching, Bill! I didn’t realize possums would eat the berries. I figured coons would. You are most welcome for the recipe, and I hope you try it out! What with Blue Bell ice cream off the shelves down here, my kids are wondering what to put on top, since they think that’s the best ice cream in La. I say, let’s get some Kleinpeter’s!!!!

  6. We have a big blackberry patch in the pasture. Bryce and I love anything blackberry. Thankfully Jason doesn’t mind picking them, I usually end up with my shirt, hair and shoelaces stuck in the bushes.

    • Oh, now, is THAT how you get out of blackberry picking? LOL! You’re so cunning! What will you make with those berries that Jason picks?

  7. Mine aren’t ready yet. And the ones at the end of the street have been demolished to make way for more houses. Argh! I’d love to try some of your cordial (hint, hint).

    • I’m out of cordial, Cuz, and it takes at least six weeks to “make”, so I’ll make sure you get some of the next batch! It’s more like an after-dinner sweet cordial, but quite good.

  8. Hope everyone has a very nice Mothers Day. I wouldn’t mind having some cobbler after we feast on boiled crawfish .

  9. Had my fill of boiled crawfish last Sunday. I think my husband has actually forgotten that tomorrow is Mothers Day and Tuesday is our 48th anniversary. Bet I help him remember. 🙂

    • I have dewberries in my back yard, they have a lot of seeds, do you strain them cause I don’t like the seeds, does yours have a lot of seeds?

      • Hi Sarah. No, I don’t strain them. If the berries are fully ripe, there shouldn’t be many seeds!!! We just enjoy the cobbler as it comes!!! Good luck! BW

  10. Hi Sarah — I grew up in Louisiana with my grandma’s slap ya mama good dewberry cobbler. I live in California with my family now and still crave dewberry cobbler because blackberries are just not the same here!! I know they grew wild when I lived there but was wondering if you can get seeds there so I can grow them here? Any thoughts? Thank you!

    • Hi Shauna and welcome to the blog. I’m not sure if Sarah will see your question, esp. since her comment was from back in May and she might not come back here to read comments. However, I think you would have better luck finding someone to send you a cutting from a dewberry vine. Did you check online nurseries to see if any sell the seedlings? (Dan Gill is a Louisiana gardening expert, and maybe he has some advice on this, as well.) Further, I don’t know anyone who has ever tried to actually grow dewberries from the seeds, but certainly that’s how they propagate naturally! I wish you the best of luck with your venture! BW
