NECTARINE COBBLER

In these waning days of summer I had a flat of Nectarines ripening up. But as it can happen, they were all ripe at once and there was no way to eat them all before they went bad. Nectarines + Ripe at same time = Cobbler.



The first thing to do is peel them. The easy way to do this is to boil some water first - when it's boiling you drop in the fruit for a few seconds. After they cool off, the skin separates from the fruit and peels right off.



Cut the nectarines up...










Add the sugar and spice - cinnamon and my fave, cardamom...








Add some flour or cornstarch or quick tapioca and mix. My preferred addition is the tapioca, but I wasn't making this at home and had no tapioca, so I used flour.





Preheat your oven to 350 and put the fruit in to start cooking.









While the fruit is cooking, get your flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl...









Whisk it together to completely blend...










Add your cut up butter - remember it must be cold...








Use your hands or a pastry cutter to mix it into a coarse meal...










Add 1/2 cup of boiling water and...











Mix until it just comes together.











Remove the partially cooked fruit from the oven...










Spoon the biscuit mix over the top - it doesn't have to be pretty. Cook for about another 1/2 hour.







Et viola! Cobbler!

This looks amazing! I wish nectarines were still in season - they are one of my top three favorite fruits! Have you tried this recipe with apples?

I have not done it with apples yet, just peaches and nectarines... maybe once with blueberries... but it's basic and would work with any fruit that you would use for pie or cobbler. And, yeah, it was delicious!
