Over the weekend, Tony came back from checking the cows carrying his hat. He offered it to me and it was filled with wild blackberries!
I have been anticipating the wild blackberries for weeks now. They are just starting to get ripe and I will be spending some time gathering up as many as I can over the next few weeks.
I gave the blackberries a good rinse and decided to bake up a crisp. I dumped them in a skillet with a bit of sugar and some fresh lemon juice. I mixed up the topping with flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and butter. It baked up in about 30 minutes and couldn’t have been easier.
It came out of the oven all bubbly and smelled like heaven. I topped it off with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream and I could’ve eaten the entire skillet. It was really easier than pie or cobbler. This will be my new go-to blackberry dessert.
I am pretty partial to blackberry desserts. My No Bake Blackberry Cheesecake and Blackberries and Cream Ice Cream are always a favorite. Of course I can make room for a couple of Easy Blackberry Mojitos anytime we are sitting on the front porch.
Picking blackberries can be a challenge. The wild blackberry bushes have terrible stickers, it’s usually hotter than hades when they finally get ripe and let’s not even talk about the chiggers. However, it’s all worth it when we bite into those ripe, juicy berries.
This crisp recipe would work with whatever fruit you have on hand and I’m sure I will be trying it with peaches this summer. Hello delicious!
