Blackberry Recipes That Remind You Why Summer Is The Sweetest Season

This season is so much sweeter thanks to this fruit.

A single blackberry, when ripe to perfection, has so much flavor: it's sweet like jam and just melts in your mouth. But not all blackberries are created equal -- some can be pretty tart. (Blackberries directly from the farmer's market will usually be sweeter than the supermarket kind.) If you find yourself stuck with sour blackberries, we suggest you sweeten them by making a dessert. Blackberries also taste great in savory recipes, especially if there's cheese involved.

These summer berries are at their peak between June and September, depending on where you are in the country, so right about now is the time to reacquaint yourself with this special fruit. We have a number of blackberry recipes that will make any and all blackberries shine -- like cobblers, jams and so much more. Some even combine the berries with other fruit, like our plum-blackberry sorbet, for some amazing results.

Here are 47 blackberry recipes that will remind you why you love this beautiful berry, and why summer really is the sweetest season.
