From the kitchen of Martha Stewart we bring you a refreshing summer time treat that is sure to please your entire family.  Blackberries are a traditional summer time sweet treat and can be eaten right of the vine, or, incorporated into your morning protein shake.

Below, we have a very popular recipe crafted by the Queen of Homemaking Martha Stewart that takes 10 minutes in prep time, serves 8, and totals 1 hour from mix to serve.

The Making of Blackberry Crisp


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup light-brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 2 3/4 pounds fresh blackberries (5 pints)
  • 2 tablespoons instant tapioca
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest, plus 1/4 cup orange juice


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a food processor, pulse flour, brown sugar, butter, and salt until combined. In a large bowl, toss together blackberries, tapioca, granulated sugar, and orange zest and juice. Pour blackberry mixture into a 2-quart baking dish. Sprinkle evenly with flour mixture. Bake until topping is golden and juices are bubbling, 50 minutes. Let cool 20 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
