Doing battle with blackberries today. My arms look like I stuck them inside a cage full of starving tigers.

Since it's not quite the dead of winter yet, the bb pie may require a Hagan Daz accompaniment. I'm gifted with a huge infestation of blackberries along the roadway where I have to mow, so it's not like I'm cultivating them intentionally. When I bought my place 12 years ago they were a complete canopy covering all the rhododendrons. Freezing them whole is a great alternative too, in which case they turn up in the dead of winter on baby Dutch pancakes.

They may have gotten you now. But if you make a pie, or can jams, or freeze them whole, you'll have a favorite saying of mine attributable to Russia. Revenge is a dish best served cold.

Although, in this case, revenge is a hot blackberry pie in the dead of winter.

Oh! goodness! A high price to pay for blackberries. Have you tried those long gloves made for pruning climbing roses? Can blackberries be tied up and managed so they are not so prickly? I was thinking of getting some different berry varieties; I will watch to be sure I get the thornless kind, knowing the usually are not as delicious.

You can call it Blackberry Vengeance Pie.
