Y’all I have something special to share with you. This old fashioned blackberries and biscuits is a dish my grandmother (Nanny) would make for breakfast during blackberry season. Back in those days, you couldn’t find berries in the store year round like you do now. Honestly, I don’t even know if berries were sold in stores back then. You had to go out and pick them yourself. That’s why this was a special treat because it only came around once a year. When the blackberries ripened we would be out picking. Oh how I remember those briar bushes scratching my hands and arms.
Making this dish for breakfast this morning brought back so many memories. It was always one of my favorite meals growing up. That’s why I wanted to share it with y’all!
Fresh blackberries are made into a syrup type sauce and served over fresh buttermilk biscuits. It is truly delicious and I hope you’ll give it a try sometime.
When I was thinking of making this, I couldn’t think of what this dish is really called. I saw one recipe that was labeled stewed blackberries and biscuits. I believe we always just called it blackberries and biscuits. Did you ever have this growing up? If so, what did you call it? I would love to know.
So here’s how to make it……….
- 12 oz or 2 cups Fresh Blackberries
- 1/2 c Granulated Sugar
- 1 tsp Lemon Juice
- 1/2 c Water
- 2 tsp Cornstarch
- 1/2 tbs Butter
- Fresh Buttermilk Biscuits – click here for biscuit recipe
