Strawberry & Rhubarb Cobbler: Michigan Style June 10, 2011

Filed under: Family — faithfulremembrances @ 12:41 pm

1.  Go out to your strawberry patch

2.  Pick a big bowl full of strawberries

3.  Go to the rhubarb plant

4.  Cut off some stalks of rhubarb

5.  While picking your fresh ingredients, take some time to smell your roses

6.   Admire your flower bed

7.  Plan your next cobbler, which will be made from fresh picked cherries

8.   Harvest some peas

9.  Also harvest some fresh mint leaves, because you will want a nice hot cup of mint tea to drink while you eat your cobbler

10.   Do all of this bare-footed as the grass is so soft it is like walking on silk.

11.  While walking around outside, breath in the nice fresh cool air.  Seventy degrees never felt so good.

12.   Take your bounty inside and wash it up.

13.  Dice up your strawberries and rhubarb.

14.  Sprinkle with just a smidgen of raw sugar.  Just a tiny bit is all you need, because fresh picked strawberries are amazingly sweet.

15.   Add about a cup of water to your strawberries and rhubarb.

16.  Pull out your jar of arrow root powder and realize it is empty.  Decide to use corn starch instead.  Thankfully you still have some non-gmo cornstarch left.  It may not be as healthy as arrow root, but at least it is not round-up ready.  Sprinkle some of it over your berries and rhubarb.

17.   Stir with your favorite spoon

18.   Pour mixture into a nice big pan and set it aside

19.  Roll some fresh oat groats.  Unless of course your grandmother packed your oat roller in some obscure box labeled “kitchen” and said box is somewhere inside your packed to the brim storage shed.  Then you use some quick oats bought from your favorite Amish grocery store.

20.   Add some brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg to your oats and mix well.

21.  Pour in some extra virgin raw coconut oil and mix with your hands until it is nice and crumbly.


22.  Smooth out oat mixture over berries and rhubarb




23.   Bake at 350 degrees fahrenheit until nice and bubbly.


24.   Sit down and enjoy a nice hot cup of tea, write a blog post, and listen to the thunder while your cobbler cooks.
