    I’ll have to try this — it’s different than my grandmother’s usual bb cobbler recipe. Blackberries are EVERYWHERE in Western Oregon, even in the middle of big cities. And come August (when they ripen here), people use them in everything — it’s awesome!

    I don’t quite get how much sugar…1/4 cup vs. 1 cup?

    1. QuatroMama says:

      It depends on how tart you like your berries. I wouldn’t do more than 1/2 cup.
