Blackberries by the gazillions - what to do?

ChefLisa | May 31, 2004 02:23 AM

If you read my post below, in addition to all the great veggies I got at the farm, I was able to pick several cups of fresh, sweet blackberries. So sweet, in fact, that by the time I got home, some of the berries were already melting and turning into juice. So now what do I do with them? I don't know how to can or make preserves (unless someone has a really easy inexpensive recipe), so I am looking for ideas other than putting them on top of ice cream or in a smoothie. Also, what's the consensus on seeding them? It seems time consuming and messy, but should I press them through a sieve before using in any recipes? Or should I try a cobbler or pie (except that I can't eat wheat/gluten and have yet to find an alternative pastry recipe that uses other types of flour or meal). Any suggestions welcome!
