I was looking for something to make for a hot summer evening and came across this recipe from an old family book. It is easy, cooks on top of the stove and uses blackberries which are plentiful in our area right now. Serve it alone, with a dollop of yogurt or whipped cream or on top of ice cream for a cooling summer dessert for yourself or the family. Don’t worry about the seeds that might get in your teeth – that is all part of summer fun.

BLACKBERRY MUSH
1 quart blackberries
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
3 tbsp cornstarch
1 tbsp water

Wash blackberries and drain. Place berries in a saucepan with water and cook until tender (about 10 minutes). If you want to remove the seeds, save the cooking water when straining through a fine sieve. Return water and berries to pan, add sugar and bring to a boil. Moisten the cornstarch with water and add enough to thicken. Cook, stirring, for about 8 minutes. Remove from heat, cool and then chill. Serve alone, with whipped cream, yogurt, on ice cream, pound cake or with whatever sounds good to you. Enjoy!
