Nectarines (※×%○■ #▽ Expensive)
Yes, baking peach cobbler – more precisely, nectarine cobbler – has become my summer ritual since I had a success last summer. Nectarines are not very popular here in Kochi, and the supermarkets I often visit seem to have them on shelf only for a few weeks in August. So this summer, I kept a close watch on the fruits section of the supermarkets, and managed to buy these before they disappeared from the shelf.
I used the same recipe as last year, but I completely forgot about all the modifications I thought I needed then. :P But still this turned out good, maybe because the nectarines I got this time were better than what I used the last time.
BTW, looks like I’m always buying “not ripe but already going bad” fruit when I bake something with fruits, right? Have you thought, “Hey, don’t you ever buy any decent fruit for desserts?” when reading my foodblog? I felt that way when I read my peach cobbler post from last year. Well, dear readers, this time I used better nectarines, and the result was pretty good, except that I overbaked the cobbler a little. :P
