Recipe by dearcat

This recipe is about 150 years old. It was given to me by a friend in Plymouth, MA. It had been handed down in her family for generations. Back then, people had wild blackberries,always had cornstarch. Lemons and sugar were expensive, so this was made for special occasions.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash berries. Cook berries and water together until nearly soft. Mix sugar, salt and cornstarch together and add slowly to berries, stirring constantly. Bring to boil and cook 5 minuter. Remove from heat and add lemon juice. Serve hot with sugar and cream.
