Peeled Nectarines (I put them in boiling water briefly)
As I wrote a year ago, now making a nectarine cobbler is one of my summer rituals. I've already learned that here (and in some other prefectures as well) nectarines are available only for several weeks in summer and once they disappear from store shelves, they never come back until next summer.
So this summer, I kept my eyes on the fruit section of several supermarkets -- not only one place --, waited until the end of our very short nectarine season and bought a pack containing the ones that seemed very ripe. Yep, no more "not-very-ripe-but-already-going-bad" fruit for my cobbler.
I should have browned the top a little more...
And I baked this nectarine cobbler on August 10th. I know. "Obachan the procrastinator," right? :D Forgive me. On the 11th and 12th, I was busy taking photos at our big dance festival (photos are here, if you are interested), and right after that I went to my parents' house. That's how I completely forgot to post about this cobbler.
BTW I used the same recipe as previous years (but I use salted butter).
Too bad I didn't have ice cream to eat with this cobbler when I took above photo. And when I did have ice cream, I didn't have time to shoot a photo because the ice cream melted so quickly.
