The Saturday Farmer's Market was bursting with yummy fruits and vegetables this week. The hardest part is choosing something that you want to take home, and then once you get it home what are you going to do with it. Most of the time we can just eat it raw, or cook it up for dinner...and I thought that we would just snack on these yummy white nectarines but they just were not soft enough and pretty tart. Sooo...
I cooked the blueberries, also from the market, and the nectarines down with a little sugar, a little water, a little cornstarch to thicken it and the juice of about half a lemon. The nectarines were a pretty white with pink on the inside, but once they were cooked(for 5-7 minutes after they came to a boil) the blueberries stained them a pretty purple. They looked good and tasted even better.
I made up some simple biscuits, whatever kind you like to make, for shortcakes and then piled on the fruit. A little hit of pouring cream and it was perfect!!!!
