Recipes with Rhonda: Blackberry Dumplings
I’ve been thinking about my grandmother's tablecloth. I can be ridiculously sentimental and this week that part of me was awakened as I watched my youngest grandchildren go to their "Gee maw" for hugs and to tell their stories. Watching them reminded me of being a young girl sitting at my grandma's kitchen table that was always covered with a simple cloth or with a tablecloth made of old flour sacks. I can almost remember what it felt like.
I often wonder if future generations will have similar memories to look back on as my generation does and hopefully my grandchildren's generation also. Tablecloths have been in use for 2000 years, originally used as a shared napkin, to soak up spills and to protect tabletops from scratches. Grandma's tablecloth was used to make her plank table look presentable and to protect breakfast leftovers from flies or other sources of dirt. There are no elegant words to describe what dried over easy eggs look like on a plate that has been hiding under a tablecloth for most of the day and that image is burned deep in my mind. Now that your appetite is stimulated, I want to share one of my favorite recipes from my grandmother's kitchen. I’ve shared blackberry cobbler before, but this is simpler, fresher, and meets criteria for comfort food.
