I could not believe my eyes when I saw the luscious containers full of plump blackberries at the store the other day.
Can you guess where I found them? Not the farmers market. Not Wholefoods. Not a local farm stand.
What a coincidence, just a short time after I wrote my I’ve Been Jamming story and there they are on the shelf in Target.
Yes you heard me right. My local Target had these beauties. I have got to go back today and I hope they still have some left.
I have never seen such pretty blackberries here.
My nerves were frayed from a morning of shopping with kids and I totally did not think about buying enough to make jam.
My daughter and I munched on one quart so I don’t have enough to make anything.
Also a few days before I found them the Pioneer Woman posted this yummy recipe for Blackberry Cheesecake and I was drooling over it and wishing I was back in Georgia for just a minute. Notice I said just a minute.
It must be fate!
So my plan today is to go back up to Target and get enough blackberries so I can make a batch of jam and maybe, just maybe that gorgeous cheesecake.
I just hope they have some left!
