Fruit Cobbler

Peach Cobbler with Ice Cream

Make two pie crusts: http://www.audreyandjon.com/recipes/pie-crust

Mix together:
6 cups fresh fruit (blackberries, sliced peaches...)
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon appropriate spice (i.e. cinnamon for peaches, cardamom for apricots, lavender for blueberries, lemon zest for blackberries, etc.)
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Let stand for 15-30 minutes, or until fruit is juicy. Add 6 tablespoons tapioca.

Lay a bottom crust down (no side crust!) in a 9x9 square pyrex, then add in the fruit mixture. Place a lattice of the rest of the crust on top.

Fruit Jam

Many Jams

This is my basic jam recipe. It can be used for just about any type of fruit jam (strawberry, raspberry, blackberry, apricot, peach, blueberry, etc.).

Yield: 4 half-pints

4 heaping cups of fruit
1/2 to 1 cup water (depending on natural juiciness of fruit)
1 package no-sugar pectin (= 3 Tbsp no-sugar pectin)
sugar to taste (probably about 1/4 cup)
Pinch of spices, if desired (things like allspice, cloves, cinnamon, ginger, lemon peel can be a nice addition, depending on the fruit)

2009 Virginia Apple WIne

Trader Joe's: 
No

From our go-to winery, Chateau O'Brien's Apple Wine is the perfect mix of sweet and crisp, light and tasty. It's not at all syrupy, and has very little residual sugar. It's perfect for a summer afternoon.

Seared Scallops with Pommes

Seared Scallops

This was in response to our taking advantage of a recent livinggrouponsocial deal with Arganica, and opting for one of their more CSA-like "give me a box of random local, organic goodies." We're already, honestly, pretty damned tired of kale and brussel sprouts, and hoped this would provide something slightly different. We got... chard and turnips. Well, OK. The dinner turned out quite good, and is somewhere between classic French and New American. We made the chard into a warm salad by wilting it and steaming it with a bit of apple cider, then tossing it with vinegar and adding pecans.

La Finca Chardonnay

Trader Joe's: 
Yes

A well-balanced Mendoza style Chardonnay - light, very little butteryness. Crisp. Goes great with cream sauces and fish.

Rugelach

Rugelach: in progress

For some reason, I got on a baking kick this week. And I decided to make rugelach. Rugelach is a jewish pastry, sort of. Like all "jewish" foods, its a European thing, brought to America first by Jews, and adopted into Jewish culture. I like them, and I thought I'd try and make them.

Lambrusco Dell'Emilia Bianco

Trader Joe's: 
Yes

Sweet and fizzy, but lightens up a creamy dish or balances a caesar salad. Could also go with -- or be part of -- a fruit dessert.
