Summer Stone Fruit & Blackberry Cobbler

Friday, August 8, 2014

 This amazing cobbler is based off my Mom's recipe (remember the blackberry cobbler I made for Advent?) but I added lemon zest, lemon juice and the ripest peaches and nectarines to take advantage of the plethora of summer stone fruit and berries at the farmer's market. 

How do you know which peaches and nectarines will taste the best? Choose only yellow varieties; white peaches and nectarines have more sugar but they also have more water and will make your cobbler mushy and runny. Yellow fruit holds much better. The fruit that is soft on the top around the stem hole (your finger can leave a slight indent) is ripe. These are the ones you want! I actually left mine sitting on our table for a couple extra days to the point of almost spoiling. They were the sweetest and most juicy peaches and nectarines we'd ever tasted. If you can't find ripe yellow fruit, or don't have time to wait until they're ready, stick to only using berries.

Cam also adds that this is delicious cold, in the morning or late at night :) And always with ice cream.
I hope you enjoy it, and have a beautiful weekend.
