It'll be a shame if we miss the Blackberry Season here. But I'm afraid we probably will. I don't see any signs of it being an early season. The Blackberry's light pink and white blossoms are still just opening their fragile petals to the filtered July sun. I find myself willing them to move through the process faster----please, just one of these scrumptious & easy berry dishes before we leave...
Jen's Cobbler Recipe
4 - 5 C. fruit of your choice (mine are always Blackberries)
1 C. sugar
8 T. butter, chopped into chunks
1 C. All-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg
a pinch of salt
1 C. milk
Method: Heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine the fruit with 1/4 C. sugar. Let the fruit sit until the sugar dissolves (30 minutes or so).
Place the butter in a baking dish and let the butter melt in the oven until it is melted and bubbling.
Combine 3/4 C. sugar, flour, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt. Add milk while slowly whisking until completely combined.
Pour the batter into the hot dish. Spoon the fruit into the middle of the batter, keeping an outer edge of batter free of berries (for a crust). Return the dish to the oven and bake until golden brown----aproximately 45 minutes to 1 hour.
