It’s that time of year again, and this is one of the most popular recipes in the Bayou Woman’s Recipe Box. Although we have a few more berry bushes than we did last year, they still have not recovered from the salty flood waters of Hurricane Ike, 2008. I didn’t have time to pick the few that ripened last week, but many of you are picking berries to your heart’s content, and I am as green about that as I can be.
Since I can’t make my own cobbler, I’ll post this recipe again in hopes that all of you will make it and enjoy it for me. Then, please be kind enough to come back and tell us how you and your partakers enjoyed it.
