A Tale of Adventure & Blackberry Cobbler

6 Jun

This past weekend my friend, Callie, and I visited our other friend, Lexi, for her birthday in Lakeland, Florida. On the way back, we followed instructions from Callie’s iPhone and ended up taking the back roads to Gainesville. On a whim, we saw a sign for “U-Pick Thornless Blackberries” and decided to make the detour. I am so happy we decided to stop, the place was fantastic and the blackberries were HUGE!!! We picked 3lbs worth because that’s all the money we had but I wish we had picked more. I ate so many while I was picking and they were so tart and sweet and fresh. Upon arriving home, I scoured the internet for all the many options I had to bake with blackberries and finally reached the conclusion for a classic southern blackberry cobbler. Ya can’t go wrong.

Me on the Blackberry Farm!

Look at these things!!
