47. Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler

I’ve been wanting to try a recipe for strawberry cobbler given to me in a comment by the author of Pigtails and Mudpies, and I also saw that someone on the GoSun page made fruit crisp in her GoSun, so yesterday I put together a pretty wonderful concoction. Pigtails and Mudpies says she likes picking her own strawberries to make this cobbler, so I am pretty happy with the combination of garden and farmer’s market that went into it:

All the strawberries I’ve been collecting and freezing from our plants (about 25 in total! Not bad for leftover plants from the former owners of our house.)

4 of the stalks of rhubarb that I bought at the farmer’s market yesterday morning.

A mixture of flour, milk, and sugar (1/2 cup of each) and lots of butter-flavored veggie oil spray to keep the cooking tray slick. Finish with cinnamon!

Unfortunately, a sunny day turned stormy by the time I was putting the GoSun out, so after an hour and a half, the hot but not cooked tube was removed in favor of cooking in a conventional oven. Note to self: aim for sunny day cooking.

It came out delicious! Both fruits are tart, so they were well supplemented by the sugary dough, but the juices from each fruit gave the whole thing a soft, pudding-ish texture; not the crisp I expected but still wonderfully flavorful. Thanks to Pigtails and Mudpies for the tip about cobbler and I will try it again in the GoSun on a sunny day!

    We used to pick blackberries to make cobbler. It was a simple recipe of 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, half cup milk, fruit, and a little butter. It makes a soft crust over the top of the fruit. Yummy!

    We used to pick blackberries and make cobbler. It was a simple recipe of 1 cup flour, either 1/2 or 1 cup sugar, 1/2 or one cup milk, fruit, and a little butter. It’s been a while since I’ve made it, so I’m iffy on the proportions without having it in front of me, but it makes a soft crust over the fruit. Yummy!

    I have seen the sun cooker thing you used online but never in person, or actually used by a person. It was just advertised. It looks really interesting.

    Thanks for following me. I’m going to follow you back because this sun cooker thing looks really interesting and I’d like to see what type of things you are able to make in it.
