My family enjoyed it so much, my hubby said it was definitely the best blackberry cobbler he has ever had, it was bursting with flavor. Here in the South, we get to enjoy blackberries early, so I am planning to go to the local farmers market weekly so I can keep making more.

What Is A Cobbler?

A cobbler is a deep dish that has a savory or sweet base, topped with dough, biscuit or dumpling that is then baked until the topping is cooked. 

Is It Okay To Eat Blackberry Seeds?

Blackberry seeds are edible therefore they are quite okay to stay on the fruit although they can be annoying to eat. I personally don’t mind the seeds on my blackberries but you can remove the blackberry seeds.

To remove your blackberry seeds, place blackberries in a saucepan with water to cover, bring to a boil, reduce to simmer blackberries. until softened, about 8 minutes.  Place blackberries in a fine mesh strainer over a bowl, using the back of a spoon mash blackberries and press on the strainer. The puree will pass through the strainer and the seeds remain inside. 

Can I Use Frozen Blackberries To Make My Cobbler?

Absolutely, you can use fresh or frozen blackberries, you can also freeze surplus blackberries during the summer so you can enjoy blackberry cobbler during the winter. Don’t thaw blackberries, just toss them with maple syrup, lemon juice, vanilla, and cornstarch.
