The dewberry vendors were out on 290 in Hempstead this weekend. The wild blackberries are only in season for a couple of weeks, so don’t miss out. I bought a gallon for $22 with the intention of making pies. Then I saw Birdie Gail’s blackberry pie sign.
I pulled over and bought one of her deep dish coconut-dewberry pies for $15. Birdie’s pie was a lot better than mine usually come out.
I pureed some of my berries, strained the seeds out, watered the pulp down and sweetened it. Now I have a pitcher of dewberry juice in the fridge. It’s better than pomegranate juice! –Robb Walsh
