Confessions of a Cracked EggOne of the sweetest parts of summer time is raiding the berry bushes of all their sweet goodies! When we first moved here, we knew for sure berry bushes were a must. Blackberry, raspberry, and blueberry bushes were added the first spring. As often happens, those blackberries multiplied yearly along with the native wild blackberries already here.  So now 5 years later we find ourselves with the most fortunate dilemma of having TOO MANY blackberries!

Ball has several yummy recipes available for those who like to can and preserve blackberries into jams, jellies, and preserves. We also enjoy making blackberry syrup to enjoy all year with our pancakes and waffles. With those recipes so well covered already I’ll just share some of our favorite summertime fresh blackberry recipes here!

The following recipe is one adapted from an apple dumpling recipe after a 4th of July conversation with a friend. He told a story of his Grandma baking him blackberry dumplings from biscuits when he was a child. These are easy and fast to make, yummy quick treat that the kids just love!
