That is a pretty sexy… sonker? New vocabulary, yay.
For the mold, have you tried that thing where you soak the berries in a 1 part white vinegar to 10 parts water solution right when you get them home? It’s supposed to kill mold spores. I’ve tried it with strawberries and raspberries, and they do seem to last about two times as long.
Hey Diane, Well, these had just gotten home from the farmers market, so there was no helping them (but plenty of annoyance at my farmer). I haven’t tried the vinegar thing, I usually just use berries on the day I buy them. This summer heat is ruining everything! ; )
Sonker looks mouthwatering…and I’m with you, I would love to wake up tomorrow and have it for breakfast! Oh, and thanks for the heads up about this book and blog.
P.S. Enjoy reading your blog, you have a way with words that’s most enjoyable…FYI-I listed you on my blog’s “Tasty Food Sites”.
Now that is what we are talking about! This recipe screams of homemade deliciousness that we would love to to replicate ourselves at home. Ms. English, you just got yourself another buyer of your book! Thanks for sharing Tim. Great photos as usual!
Looks so delicious! I had thought that a sonker was a regional deep-dish pie, sort of like a cobbler made with pastry dough instead of biscuits. I need a primer on the difference between all that stuff. Pandowdy, sonker, slump, buckle…whatever they are, I love to eat them!
That book sounds like a must-have. Which recipe did you contribute? The sonker looks superb; I’m always happy to learn of new fruit desserts, and I’m a sucker for anything baked in a skillet! Gorgeous. : )
Tim! I came to your blog today looking for a recipe for blackberries, since I just went out in the backyard and picked about a pound of perfectly huge and ripe and sweet ones from the neighbor’s bushes. (If you live in the Northwest, you never pay for blackberries!) Lo and behold, your top recipe is for blackberries!
THEN… as I perused the comments, I read the comment that mentioned the newest recipe on Ashley’s blog, gazpacho. WHAT DO YOU KNOW, I bought 4 lbs of tomatoes today at the market to make gazpacho tonight. You just took care of my evening menu. Thanks, Tim!!
I’ve never heard of a “sonker,” either, but I’m glad I know what one is now… this looks delicious! It reminds me a lot of the chicken and dumplings my aunt made for me when I was younger, only a sweet version!
