How about some pudding?
I posted this recipe for cornstarch pudding last summer but I wanted to show my 16 blackberries from the garden.  Yes.  16.  This is the most that my bushes have produced.  Ever.
In a double boiler combine; 1/4 cup of sugar and 3 T. of cornstarch.
Slowly add 1/4 cup of milk-use a little whisk to get rid of any lumps.
Add in 2 cups of milk and squish out the guts of a vanilla pod.
Whisk over the heat until thick.  Pour over bowls with berries on the bottom. 
Chill for as long as you can wait-think of Grandma Gibson while you eat it.  I always do ๐Ÿ™‚
