The blackberries, they are a-comin’ in! I can’t imagine a summer without blackberries. Summer berry pickin’ has been  a routine since I was a pup. Finding a wild blackberry patch is near impossible where I live, so I planted my own.

We pick a handful, or two, everyday and freeze them. When our grandchildren are here,they pick a handful, or two, and eat them. Even when they’re tart, the taste of a blackberry warmed by the sun and picked fresh off the vine is pretty special.  I don’t use any chemicals on them so we don’t need to worry about washing them prior to the kids eating them. Just pick ‘n eat.

I haven’t made a blackberry pie in quite a long spell so it high time. Because of my love of the flavor of blackberries, it’s the only fruit or berry pie I made without adding additional spices or flavorings. I want to taste blackberry and nothing but blackberry. My berries are tart so they do need a good amount of sugar added. I throw in some flour for thickening and call it a day.  When I bake it in a butter crust, I don’t feel it’s necessary to dot the top of the filling with butter.

If you have sweet blackberries, you might want to cut back on the sugar. Also, add about a tablespoon of lemon juice or throw in about a half a handful or red blackberries to sweet berries.  The amount of sugar added to a fruit or berry pie filling strictly depends on the  sweetness of the fruit and the taste preference of the cook.

In the words of my grandmother, “It’s all accordin’ to how sweet you want it, Shug.”

Y’all come see us!

    How do you get it to hold together? Usually ppl use cornstarch or tapioca.

      I use 1/2 cup all purpose flour as a thickening agent. It’s included in the recipe.
