I just picked a pound of blackberries from my Dad's yard. Probably about 4 cups worth. Aside from eating them as is, any suggestions?

blackberry pancakes or black berry cookies <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:"> I also love fresh fruit in a bowl of cereal and soymilk<br><br><br><br>
2 cups all-purpose flour<br><br>
2 teaspoons baking powder<br><br>
1/2 teaspoon salt<br><br>
1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter<br><br>
1 cup sugar<br><br>
1 egg<br><br>
1/4 to 1/3 cup milk<br><br>
1 teaspoon almond extract<br><br>
2 teaspoons lemon zest, about 1 lemon<br><br>
1/2 cup chopped almonds, toasted<br><br>
1 cup frozen blackberries, thawed and drained<br><br><br><br>
In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt.<br><br>
In another medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar using a hand mixer. Add egg and beat to incorporate. Add milk, almond extract, and lemon zest.<br><br><br><br>
Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Fold in the almonds, then the blackberries. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.<br><br><br><br>
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.<br><br><br><br>
Using two small spoons, dollop mix onto cookie sheets. Bake until golden brown around the edges, about 15 minutes.<br><br><br><br><br><br>

Ooh, make a tart or shortcake. Or maybe you could make jelly, which will last into winter and who knows how much longer.

every year we have about 6lb of blackberries in my parents garden in the uk (their blackberries go nuts and take over the garden no matter how much we try and stop them, lol) - so now i'm in canada, your post made me smile and remember the happy (but very messy) childhood blackberry fights that we used to enjoy in august with the kids from up the street. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> not sure if i'd suggest doing that though!<br><br><br><br>
other than that, i second blackberry jelly (like jam but with no seeds). we used to have this all the time when i was a kid, and it was lush, especially in hot toasted sandwiches, when its cold outside, later in the year.<br><br><br><br>
also, blackberry and apple pie, or crumble, is definately worth making. we tend to make tonnes of them and freeze them- they keep really well and taste really good served all hot from the oven, especially in the winter.<br><br><br><br>
also, if you can get hold of some sponge flan cases, and some of that flan fruit jell topping stuff (its a fruit flavoured jelling compound), and some vegan squirty cream, you could make really nice blackberry sponge desserts. mmmmmm.

Blackberries, yummm!! You could always do a blackberry pancake topping?<br><br><br><br>
But, of course I'd have eaten them before they made it home!!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br><br><br>

I suggest blackberry cobbler. Or <a href="http://www.cdkitchen.com/recipes/recs/34/Black_Berry_Dumplings41319.shtml" target="_blank">blackbery dumplings</a> with your fave vanilla ice cream.
