Blackberry cobbler on St. Michael's Feast day
We celebrated Knox's feast day with blackberry cobbler and Queen of Angels Chicken. It was a good dinner, we didn't have any shirkers.
It was all gone by the end of dinner.
Going in the oven...
Someone tasted it before I could get a picture! The sugar melts down if you put it right when it comes out and leaves a nice crust on top. You have heard the legend, why we commemorate St. Michael's feast day with blackberries- because when Satan was thrown down out of heaven into a blackberry bush, he spat on the berries. So they are sour after St. Michael's feast day! LOL, blackberry picking here in Kansas is only through EARLY August at best by the way. I had to buy store berries.
We made blackberry jam back in July when we had the opportunity for some real picking. I love reading this article about St. Michael, it pulls all the bible verses together so nicely.
St. Michael, pray for us!
