'tis the season for some fresh fruits. I bought my first tiny basket of boysenberries today at the farmers' market. I wanted to make a cobbler, but didn't quite have enough, so I made the other half of the dish an apricot cobbler. Boysenberries only last a few weeks, but they really taste good.
There were an abundance of apricots today. One box was for making jam. They sold for $1/pound. I bought a few. I just had to cut out the small bruises or bird pecks. I may try making apricot nectar next week.
I used spelt flour, butter, sugar, cream of tarter, baking soda, and a little soy milk. It's like a drop biscuit except just a little sweet. Most Betty Crocker cookbooks or Better Homes & Gardens have good recipes for cobbler toppings, except use spelt or a compliant flour, compliant substitute for shortening (ghee, butter, oil), compliant sweetener, and water or soy milk for regular milk. If you don't have one of these cookbooks, you can probably find one at the library. Also, substitute equal parts cream of tarter and soda for baking powder, unless you have non-aluminum baking powder.
