Yes my friends, it’s time for blackberries! The season is here, the berries are ripe and ready for picking.
Blackberries grow wild here along the American River, and pretty much around all of the creeks and streams in California. Heck, they even grow wild in empty lots and neglected back yards in San Francisco.
Some friends and I went berry picking at the river this week and brought home a couple pounds of fresh, ripe, juicy berries, perfect for a pie.
And a perfect pie it is, or was. It didn’t last long.
What is better than chocolate pudding? Chocolate pudding pie, of course!
Don’t get me wrong, I love cake, but at the end of the day, the pies have it. Give me some fruit in a crust and you will be my BFF. But sometimes you just need chocolate.
When blueberries are in season, what better to do with them (other than eating them straight from the basket) than make blueberry pie?
Blueberries have been found to be a “superfood”, so good for you that you should go out of your way to eat them. (As if we need a reason, right?)
