Earlier in the Summer I featured recipes from Dori Sander’s Country Cooking Cookbook. Even though I shared several recipes with you at that time, I wanted to share one more recipe for Blackberry Dumplings. There isn’t anything more Southern in my area of the South than Blackberries. I love the tartness of wild blackberries but I love the cultivated blackberries too. When I was growing up there were no blackberries that I can remember being available in the grocery store. We went out into the woods and picked them even though we risked chigger bites. You realized how much it was worth that risk when you were eating that wonderful blackberry cobbler.
I don’t think I have ever eaten blackberry dumplings but this sounds absolutely delicious. I love Dori’s suggestion that you can make it on the stove or over hot coals. You can use frozen blackberries and because I have some frozen, I think this would make a wonderful winter dessert.
I have enjoyed Dori’s cookbook so much and I really think this will be another cookbook I will add to my wish list. Thanks for stopping by.
