I grew up in farm country, in the Midwest. One of my favorite summer activities was picking blackberries, raspberries and black raspberries with my family. We used to have competitions to see who could get the fullest bucket—and avoid the spiders and ants and chiggers that lived in those wonderful bushes. When we got the berries home, we cleaned and froze most of them for use during the cold winter months. But we also made blackberry jam, and my favorite--blackberry cobbler.
