I try to make this whenever I can get my hands on blackberries.

The blackberries smelled wonderful while they were cooking! I made this last night, and took a quick bite this morning ... it's great! The only thing I would say is I personally think this calls for way too much sugar. I only put in one cup, but it still seems far too sweet. I will definitely make this again, but maybe only put as little as 1/4 cup of sugar, so that the natural sugars can shine through.
