Blackberry and Apple Cobbler

Blackberry Barefoot HerbsBlackberries remind me of my childhood. I grew up in England where they grow wild and can be found on pathways, fields and gardens. When they are freshly picked they have an addictive combination of tartness and sweetness which you don’t find in shop bought ones.  If the berries are  picked before being fully ripe you tend to get the tartness without the sweet aftertaste.

Blackberries combine beautifully with apples and this cobbler is a cinch to make.
