1 teaspoon cornstarch

4 or 5 nectarines, peeled and sliced

1/2 pint blackberries

Honey Tips

Honey Is One of the Oldest Foods

Honey is one of the oldest foods in existence. It was found in the tomb of King Tut and was still edible since honey never spoils.


Preheat oven to 400°.
Butter a 9-inch square baking dish.
In a bowl, combine honey and cornstarch. Stir in fruits.
In another bowl, whisk together dry ingredients. Add butter, blending until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in milk, until dough is just combined.
Spread fruit mixture in prepared baking dish. Drop dough on top of fruit in 4 mounds. Sprinkle almonds on top and bake for 20 minutes, or until golden.
