Summertime Blackberry Pie Recipe
In the North West region of the United States in the state of Oregon, blackberries are in abundance during the late summer! Blackberries can become a nuisance when they grow on your property if they are left untended. Gradually the can vines take over everything so it’s necessary to pruned back the vines or pulled them out of the ground. With all my lamenting on the woes of blackberry vines, I will say that picking sun sweetened blackberries off the vine will produce the delicious reward of Summertime Blackberry Pie. A warm slice of pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream melting over the berries is worth the scratches and stained hands. That slice of pie is even more enjoyable if you can talk the younger kids into running outside with buckets in hand to pick the berries for you!
Fortunately the Oregon Blackberry is a flavorful burst of summertime when you bite into a juicy berry. Hunting them down and picking them yourself can be very rewarding and much less expensive. Remember, you can always purchase fresh blackberries that have already been picked! I have to admit that most of the time, I do this when making blackberry pie for my family.
