Fresh Recipe: Strawberry Cobbler (and Jam Session)

Charlotte Fresh and hubby indeed jammed it up this weekend using the strawberries I picked at Hall Family Farm.  Have a look at the fruits of our labor:

Yes, I know the berry flesh is floating at the top, but I didn’t know to let it set for a few minutes off the stove and stir before funneling into the jar for more even distribution. Better technique next time – but it sure does taste good!

Here are some pics from the sticky, but fun process:

So, we had some leftover jam that didn’t go into the jars, and we were looking for a reason to eat it.  I decided to give my friend Bill’s cobbler recipe a whirl.  Here it is with a few of CF’s tweaks (thanks, Bill!):

  • 1 & 1/2 C milk

Melt the stick of butter at 350 degrees in a 13×9 pan.

Mix the flour, sugar and milk until you get a smooth batter.  Let the batter sit for a few minutes.

Pull the melted butter pan out of the oven and carefully pour the batter in.  Dot the batter with the berries.

    Wow, that looks very tasty! Katie would love it!

  2. That looks so great. If I can stop making other things with them, I’m going to make strawberry jam this year. Isn’t it great to live in the South at this time of year!

    • Thanks, Rufus! I am so spoiled by the tasty early berries we get down here. For jam, try the Ball books or the tried and true “Putting Food By”; the recipes are easy and awesome. Loving the pics and recipes on your blog!
