Great story, Don!
Reminded me of my popcorn story. I worked the candy and coin counter in a department store which also involved selling popcorn.
I was handing a bag of popcorn to a customer when I noticed a spider on my arm.
Let us just say that there was popcorn everywhere.
I'd love to plant some boysenberries but my patio is too small. They'd have to fight with the mint to see who would win.
My dad had some awesome boysenberries growing years ago.
Here's a simple recipe:
Lazy Man’s Cobbler
1 stick melted butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
3 tsp Baking Powder
Stir dry ingredients well and pour in the melted butter, stirring well. Pour in to am 11” x 8 inch pan.
Take any kind of fruit and dump in. Sweeten if needed.
Bake for 45 minutes at 300º.
or a wee bit harder: Cannon Beach Blackberry Cobbler Serves 8-10 1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup milk
1 pint (2 cups) fresh Marion berries, or other blackberries, or 2 cups frozen Marion berries, thawed in a single layer on a paper towel for 20 minutes
1/2 to 1 cup sugar, for berries
1 cup hot water. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease an 8 by 8-inch baking dish. Stir together the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, butter and milk. Toss the berries with the sugar to taste and stir into the batter. Spoon the batter into the baking dish. Pour 1 cup hot water over all and bake for 45 (50 minutes for frozen berries), until the batter rises to the surface around the edges of the pan and is light golden brown
