Peach Blueberry Cobbler

By Anthony Salemme, contributing chef

Local Spring and Summer fruits are abundant at every farm stand at this time of year.

One of my favorites is a good cobbler. You can substitute your favorite fruits. Mix them up or use only one. Serve with whipped cream.

4 cups peaches, peeled and sliced

2 cups blueberries

½ cup water or fruit juice

1 teaspoon ginger

1 stick Cabot butter

1 ½ cups flour

1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

1 ½ cups buttermilk

1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Combine peaches, blueberries, ginger and 1 cup sugar in a saucepan, bring to a boil and simmer 10 minutes.

Place butter in a 9”x9” baking pan place in oven to melt. Mix remaining cup of sugar with baking powder and stir in buttermilk and vanilla. Pour mixture over melted butter. The batter will be on top when it’s done, really it will.

Pour the fruit mixture over the batter and bake for 50-60 minutes until slightly browned on top.
