First, find your blackberries

First, locate your blackberrying spot.

Don’t pick mushrooms – not compatible with blackberry crumble/cobbler/fool.


Note: not all mushroom-like things ARE mushrooms. Do check first.  A hat tastes terrible in a crumble, even if it is Italian.

 Pick blackberries.

If carrying babes in sling, remove before entering thicket.

remove child first

Brambles + child = screaming.

Pick blackberries until full blackberry collecting receptacle is full.

Walk in woods until tired.

Then rustle up some cobbler – which goes just like this:

100g sugar, 100g flour, 1 tbspoon baking powder, 50g ground almonds, 100ml milk, 75g butter. Blend until blended. Plop globs (or dollops, either will do) on top of blackberries in dish. I added about spoon of sugar and a bit of water to the blackberries. And a handful of plums. Bake for 30 mins on gas mark 4.

    I ended up making a cobbler too – but mine didn’t look nearly as yummy as yours… back to the blackberry tub for another try!

About me

I started this blog to help me Get Things Done: sewing and knitting mostly.
But now I have a daughter! So I continue to daydream in enormous detail about what I'd like to make, but squeeze the 'doing' into precious naptimes and evenings.

Can I keep it up? Time will tell!
