Turns out there are several blackberry bushes growing along our long driveway, and my siblings and I have taken to picking them in the last several days. So far we've got a cereal bowl full, which is growing everyday. Does anyone have any suggestions as what to make with them? I thought about ice cream, but if anyone has some links to tried recipes that would be great.

I do not have the exact recipe with me at work, but I make cobbler with them.  My husband loves all sorts of berries and I adapted the recipe I use from a peach cobbler recipe but try looking for recipes.  I make them in individual size portins and he loves it with ice cream on top.  Depending on what berries are in season I use strawberries, raspberries, blueberris, blackberries, erc.. and mix them up.  Hope this helps!

Blackberry ribs!

 4 teaspoons chili powder
4 garlic cloves -- minced
1 teaspoon salt
2 slabs baby back pork ribs (about 2 pounds)
2 1/2 cups fresh blackberries or frozen -- thawed
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup minced peeled fresh ginger
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce

Preheat oven to 400F. Mix chili powder, garlic, and salt in small bowl; rub mixture into ribs. Place ribs on large rimmed baking sheet, meaty side up. Bake ribs 50 minutes.
Meanwhile, puree remaining ingredients in blender until almost smooth. Strain blackberry puree into heavy medium saucepan; discard solids in sieve. Cook puree over medium-high heat until reduced to 1 cup, stirring frequently, about 5 minutes. Season sauce to taste with salt and pepper.

Brush ribs with enough sauce to coat. Continue baking until sauce browns and forms thick glaze, about 10 minutes longer. Cut slabs between bones into individual ribs. Serve with remaining blackberry sauce.

Also, good with pork or chicken:
Cook your pork or chicken in a pan/remove meat and add 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar; add 1/2 cup of blackberries, crushed, and cook until nice and syrupy. If too tart, add a tiny bit of sugar.

I would add a banana, ice cream (vanilla or be daring and use chocolate!) and a bit of milk. No milk if you want a thicker shake.

You can really add whatever fruits you like! If you aren't one for dairy use ice or freeze the banana and add soy milk!

Oh lucky.
In the woods behind my house We have tons of blackberry bushes but they aren't ripe yet.
I just like washing them and sprinkling them with honey or sugar.

here is the recipe I make...I finally got it sorry it took so long!

This is the recipe I  use to make cobbler but instead of peaches I use berries, and for the light corn-oil spread I use light smart balance.  Hope you like this...
6 large peaches (or berries)
all purpose flour
3 tablespoons light corn-oil spread
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.  Peel peaches ( or wash berries).  In a large bowl toss fruit with 1/4 cup sugar and 2 tablespoons flour.  Spoon each mixture into 5 8 ounce ramekins or custard cups.
2. In a small bowl, with hand, mix light corn oil spread cinnamon, 1/3 cup flour and 3 tablespoons sugar until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Sprinkle mixture on top of the fruit cups.
3. Place ramekins on a jelly-roll pan  for easier handling.  Bake for 25 to 30 minutes until mixture is bubbly and crumb topping is golden brown.  Serve warm. Makes 5 servings.
Each serving is about 230 calories, 5 grams fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 1 mg sodium ( with peaches)
I put ice cream on top for my husband.  I can't vouch for how good its taste cause I do not like cobbler but everyone I make it for seems to love it.
