Raquel’s Roadside Ditch Dessert

Raquel & Jacob pick'n berries

Pre-flattened protein aside, there are tons of roadside edibles in the mountains of Western North Carolina.  Poke salad, ramps, Queen Ann’s lace, mint and berries abound.  This morning’s ride produced our dessert for tonight, blackberry cobbler and blackberry ice cream. 

 Happy Independence Day!  Or if you’re reading this in England…Happy Empire Purification Day!

blackberry cobbler & homemade blackberry ice cream

Raquel’s Blackberry cobbler:


3 or 4 water bottles of fresh blackberries

1 tablespoon  lemon juice

1 large egg

1 cup sugar

1 cup all-purpose flour

6 tablespoons butter, melted

blackberry ice cream (not optional)


Preheat oven to 375°. Place blackberries in a lightly greased 8-inch square baking dish; sprinkle with lemon juice. Stir together egg, sugar, and flour in a medium bowl until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle over fruit. Drizzle melted butter over topping. Bake at 375° for 35 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly. Let stand 10 minutes. Serve warm with blackberry ice cream.

    calculator and they know how to get to their target weight without fail, there must

    Adjust your standard of living to fit your new economic reality – if you
    continue with the same behaviors and habits that led to your bankruptcy filing, you will end up in the same difficult position. This could end up as having the consumer’s wages
