NATIONAL CHERRY COBLER DAY

NATIONAL CHERRY COBBLER DAY

May 17th each year dedicates the celebration of National Cherry Cobbler Day to the delicious tart dessert that many enjoy with ice cream. Many believe the early American Colonies are where this recipe began born out of a lack of proper cooking utensils.

In the United States, cobbler refers to a variety of dishes consisting of a fruit filling (cherry being a popular choice ) covered with a batter, biscuit, or pie crust that is then baked. Some cobblers have both a top and bottom crust.

Cobblers originated in the early British American colonies. Due to the lack of suitable ingredients and proper cooking equipment, English settlers were unable to make their traditional suet puddings. They improvised by covering a stewed filling with a layer of uncooked biscuits or dumplings.

A cherry cobbler differs from a crisp as a cobbler lacks oatmeal. Sometimes the cobbler is topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, too!

Cherries also offer a bounty of nutrients. For example, the antioxidants in this red fruit protect cells from damage. Because cherries pack an anti-inflammatory punch, they may help reduce the risk of heart disease, too.


Although my favorite cobbler is peach, I would never turn down a cherry cobbler if there were no peach cobbler available.

 Cherry Cobbler recipe!

    National BBQ day yesterday. Cherry Cobbler day today!! You are on a roll DonnieM!!!

    Peach Cobbler used to be my favorite but After having a Cherry cobbler made of Fresh Cherries, it’s a tie. Maybe even give the nod to the fresh cherry cobbler and fresh cherries will be on the market soon.

    Tip with fresh cherries. Get a good straw like those from Starbucks and push up from the bottom to remove the pit through the top. Makes it a lot easier

    Donnie,

    Blackberry is my absolute favorite cobbler (for sentimental reasons too...had a great time picking blackberries as a kid with my dad's family near Thomasville), but I would never turn down a good cherry cobbler either!

    Or a good peach or blueberry cobbler for that matter.

    And just a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

    BlackBerry my favorite also, but cannot get it like mom used to make it. Also from s ga., my father would drop us off in woods and pick us up 3-4 hours later. As adult am now amazed that I never saw a snake while in woods, as we were in prime rattlesnake area.

    Wife did make a peach cobbler yesterday.

    Can’t believe I overlooked blackberry. But hard to find wild blackberries and domesticated store bought ones are not as good. Used to pick as a youngster and got eaten up with chiggers if you didn’t put on repellant. Wearing long sleeves in July and August fighting briars everywhere was hot but worth it
