(From Southern Living Annual Recipes, 1997)
1 quart frozen blackberries
1 cup sugar

3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2/3 cup milk
Whipped cream (optional ... but necessary if you're from the South!)
Bring blackberries, 1 cup sugar, lemon extract, and 1/4 teaspoon salt to a boil in large ovenproof Dutch oven; reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes.
Combine remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, flour, baking powder, 1 tablespoon sugar, and nutmet in a medium bowl; stir in milk just until blended (dough will be thick).
Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto hot blackberry mixture.
Bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees, for 35 minutes or until golden. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream, if desired.
