If a recipe says "untested"...

We want to post scans of all the original recipes so everyone in our family can enjoy them even if we haven't gotten around to testing each one in our modern kitchen. As we test each recipe, we will add our notes and photos to the recipes we do test and remove the note "untested" in the title. If you make one of the untested recipes, take a photo of the finished product and send us a note to let us know of your experience so we may include those in the recipes as well.

Mixed fruit cobbler (untested)

This recipe is written in ballpoint pen in Grammy's handwriting. It is dated September 1975 and attributed to "FJ".

The recipe doesn't indicate a specific fruit so I am guessing that any dehydrated fruit you want to use would work. You could combine fruits to make it truly a "mixed fruit" cobbler or make it with just one kind of fruit. This recipe seems like a great way to use food storage.

  • 4 1/2 cup dried fruit
  • 4 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cup sifted flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup milk

  1. Cut up dried fruit
  2. Place fruit and water in a 3 quart saucepan
  3. Bring to a boil
  4. Reduce heat
  5. Cover and simmer 15 minutes or until fruit is tender
  6. In a separate bowl, combine corn starch, 3/4 cup sugar and cinnamon 
  7. Stir sugar mixture into hot fruit mixture
  8. Pour into 11-inch by 7-inch by 1.5-inch pan
  9. Sift together flour, baking powder, 3 tablespoons sugar and salt
  10. Cut in butter until crumbly
  11. Add milk
  12. Stir just until moistened
  13. Drop crumble by spoonfuls over the top of the fruit mixture
  14. Bake at 400°F for 25 minutes or until golden brown
