1 teaspoon cornstarch

4 or 5 nectarines, peeled and sliced

1/2 pint blackberries

Honey Tips

Honey Is Magic

In the days before biology and botany were understood, people thought it was a special kind of magic that turned flower nectar into honey.


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.
