    This looks and sounds good, we used to make blackberry jam cake and it was so good…..haven’t had one of those in yrs….my daughter likes blackberries on oatmeal……they are good no matter how you eat them….:)

    I remember when I was about 15-16 years old, my grandfather’s 2nd wife had canned a bunch of blackberries & while we were visiting, I ended up making several blackberry cobblers.

    We just went out for the third or fourth time to pick some near our house & they were done.Meaning,they were shriveled up & their season is over.(at least in that particular patch anyway!)
    I’m not looking for more,mosquitoes are horrendous.
    And speaking of bugs,do the Amish permit use of insect repellents? Am sure the Shwarztentruber (sp?) do not,but the others?
