    She never used a written recipe and didn't write any of hers down

    She never wrote any of her recipes down. She did teach me how to make homemade egg noodles with pot roast.

    sweeten the berrys to taste. into a baking dish. any size you like. cover with a dry cake mix. melt butter and drizzle over the top. bake.
    a little brown sugar before the butter is OK.
    we usually use a yellow cake mix, spice works, what ever you want.
    a single layer of berrys gives a thicker crust.
    works with any fruit.
    recipe? "dont need no stinking recipe"

    A few yrs ago our neighbor gave us a cutting from her tame/ thornless blackberry bush so we planted it off the corner of the garage. By the next year it had out grown the trellis & was beginning to grow under the eave & roof shingles. It had already sent tendrils behind the corner post of the siding. We have a stamped concrete border around the entire perimeter of the house about 3' from the foundation. Tendrils had already grown under it & were starting to grow under the garage slab. I began to feel like Jack & the beanstalk. We cut it down & pulled & dug the roots & runners, but it still took a few yrs for volunteer runners to stop coming up through the weed guard. I swear, had we left it alone, it would have taken over the whole acre of our property & covered the house. The berries were big & sweet while they lasted. The neighbor built a horizontal trellis out of PVC pipe & you can't see it for the vines, but it's far from her house & hasn't appeared to have grown out of bounds.....yet.

    what kind of super soil was it planted in? they may be "tame" but sometimes you have to tame them. heavy pruning may be required. these things require work. worth it!

    We had black and red raspberries all over our yard in Anchorage Alaska when I was a kid. Summer was always a time to pick your own wild grown berries right out of your yard. Not fun to try and get through those briars though. Not fun at all.

    We bought a basket of peaches three weeks ago and they were so hard I could hardly bite into them, had to wait two weeks to eat them. I will wait another week or so to let them get ripe.

    ya got to know how to squeeze one just right, know what i mean Vern?
    a peach can go from hard to soft [just right] to rotten in a very short time. that is why ya got to know how to squeeze one.
