Hello All, I keep asking my southern husband what type of cake he would like for his birthday. He declined a cake and is instead requesting a blackberry cobbler. Does anyone have any idea where I can purchase a blackberry cobbler?
It’s the ultimate Southern-style dessert that has won the hearts of folks below the Mason-Dixon for more years than we can count – peach cobbler. But, this sweet treat has a modern twist that takes the classic dish to another delicious level.
If you were alive in the late 18th and early 19th century, as some of you might have been, you know that it was no guarantee that your cocktail would be served or cooled with ice. In fact, there was a good chance the tavern or bar you were in had no ice at all. Especially if you lived in the American South or a stone's throw from the equator. You can thank Frederic Tudor, the “Boston Ice King,” for remedying that. His ice deliveries from the Northeast to hotter climates paved the way for creative uses of ice like the crushed “cobble stone”-like pieces of ice found in the cobbler.
