My oldest daughter made a large cobbler for the whole family to enjoy at home. We are debating, but we think we favor her blackberry crisp recipe over her cobbler recipe.
The girls made 12+ jars of jam last year. Some of the jars made it to grateful friends locally and family out of state. The girls are gearing up to repeat their jamming production this coming week.
Meanwhile, even the little grand girls have been out berry picking handfuls to munch as well as a few for their buckets for me to put on my cereal in the morning. Also, we noticed several cars stopping at the hedge across the street so that the car occupants [all women so far] could help themselves to the wild blackberries growing among the rhododendron bushes.
... yummy and practical traditions!
