Too many blackberries!
 
We've kind got a blackberry overload going at our place. I'm thankful for the berries but running out of ideas. We have:

Made jam
Froze berries
Made cobblers
Made berry rolls
Canned berries
Dehydrated berries

What else can I do? And ideas and recipies would be great!

Oh yeah...we've also done muffins, pancakes, smoothies, popsicles and fruit strips. Maybe some syrup though, that sounds good.

:giggle2: There is no such thing as to many blackberries. :giggle2:
Syrup sounds great. Also can you can some whole so you can use them later in the year in recipes?

I love blackberry chicken. Basically you make a less-sweet quick jam first, and then put it on chicken that is around an hour left of cooking time in the crockpot or around 15-20 mins left in the oven. It glazes the chicken sweet and tart. I actually do the same thing with pork and apricots. We eat over rice.

Blackberry homemade ice cream is probably the most yummy ice cream there is.

Too many blackberries give you the trots. I know, because we pick berries every single night, and my two year old eats her whole bucket every single night. We get 1.5 to 3 gallons per night, which I feel very blessed to have, but wouldn't mind a break from picking and processing! It's one of those things that once it's done you miss it though. And I'm running out of ideas with what to do....enter you guys! Awesome ideas guys! I have canned a whole bunch whole for cooking already, and have a bunch of jars lined up in the basement. I also use frozen ones for cooking, so I've got this part covered! :goodvibes: I'm going to be doing the syrup, and got some delicious ideas from the homesteading forum, but I have got to go to the store tomorrow because I've run out of canning jars. Does anyone know the cheapest place to get them? I usually get mine at Walmart, but wondering if there was somewhere online that was cheaper. I'm going to need a bunch! :thumbsup:

You can ask for Jars on freecycle or sites like it.
