frozen blackberry recipes??

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to defrost my deep freezer, so I am in "eat the freezer mode". And yes, we are having some interesting dinners!


I have 2 packages of frozen blackberries I need to figure something to do with. I have 1 frozen pie shell. Any ideas?????

I recently took out a package of frozen blackberries I picked last September. I ended up making some blackberry syrup. I checked allrecipes.com for a recipe, but as I recall I just added 4 cups of sugar to the 6 or 8 cups of berries I had and let them boil for a little bit. Then I strained it. The juice made wonderful syrup and the slurry from the remains from the berries was good on top of the waffles or pancakes too.


I was concerned about making a pie or crisp because I thought they would make too much juice having been frozen. I still have another package in the freezer, so I'll be interested in what others say.

Berry Breakfast Bars


We first had these when camping with a group at Yosemite. What a great breakfast in a beautiful setting!


Prepare a 9†x 13†pan with non-stick spray. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.


In a saucepan, stir together 3 – 4 cups of frozen blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries (or a combination thereof) with 4 tablespoons of cornstarch and ½ - 1 cup sugar (depending on your preference). Cook on medium heat until thickened, giving the mixture the occasional stir.


In a large mixing bowl, combine:


1 cup butter (softened)

1 cup brown sugar


Beat in 2 eggs.


In another bowl combine:


3 cups flour (The original recipe calls for whole wheat. You can use whole wheat, white wheat or plain flour; I like a combination.)


2 cups oatmeal


4 Tablespoons sesame seeds (optional)


2 tsp baking power


½ tsp baking soda


2 tsp grated orange rind (I usually use dried)


Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture, half at a time, blending well. Mixture will be dry and crumbly. Press a little more than half of it in your prepared pan. Spread fruit mixture over dough. Press out remaining dough between fingers and lightly place pieces of it over the fruit. The fruit layer will be almost completely covered.


Bake 35 minutes.


Once they are cut into bars, these freeze beautifully.

For the blackberry sauce, heat raspberry jam (seedless) in microwave until hot and melted. You just want enough to coat and bind the berries. Stir in a pinch or more of powdered ginger and some lemon juice until taste brightens. (You're not shooting for ginger-flavored sauce, but a little ginger intensifies the fruit flavor w/o calling attention to itself.) Stir in frozen (not thawed) blackberries. They will thaw in the hot jam and in a little while you will have a gorgeous, jewelled, not-too-sweet sauce for your cheesecake. I make a sauce like this with mixed frozen berries from Trader Joe's.


Or, send the blackberries to my house and do anything you want with the crust! :001_smile:

Blackberry Gingerbread. Yum. Yum. Yum. :)


Us too. We like fruit only smoothies - no dairy. Throw in your blender about a cup of fruit juice, any kind ( I think they are especially good with a bit of grape juice in the mix.) 1 T lime or lemon juice, Then 2-3 cups or so of fruit - any kind. WE use pineapple, peaches, any berries, banana,( fruit can be frozen or fresh), a couple of ice cubes and blend it till smooth.
