    Ohhh…what can you NOT do! I’ve been regretting for weeks my purchase of a pint when I really wanted a huge bucket (the price tag held me back). First, I would eat as many as I could while rinsing (nothing like a warm blackberry). Second, pack in my lunch to mix in with greek yogurt. Third, freeze for smoothies, fancy cocktail ice cube or eat plain on a hot afternoon. Fourth, I make a pretty tasty peach & blackberry cobbler – in a large pan or individual ramekins. Fifth, mash with a fork with some quality maple syrup to pour over pancakes/waffles. Sixth, experiment using in a vinaigrette. Well now you’ve done it BS…I’ll be heading to the Durham farmer’s market Saturday for a bucket. What about an entree with blackberries?!?
