Since 1946, the Gonzales family has grown the rare and fabulous California Blenheim apricots. Grown on our Hollister ranch, we continue to be the farmer, pruner, dryer, packer, and seller of the vanishing Blenheim apricot. We produce the best tasting apricots in the world all "Home Grown in the Flavor Zone"!
In addition to our incredible dried apricots, be sure to discover our variety of nuts (walnuts, pistachios, almonds) and other dried fruits (peaches, pears, prunes, and more). For those who believe less is more, we have dark and delicious unsulfured dried apricots. And don't forget our sweet and tart selection of apricot jams and syrups as well as our decadent chocolate covered fruits and nuts. Simply delicious! Everything here on the ranch is organically grown.
World's Best Apricot Cobbler
- 1/2 cup butter
- 3 - 4 cups fruit and its juices
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
- 1 cup milk
Put the butter in a deep casserole at least 9 inches in diameter and place in a cold oven. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. If the fruit is not juicy, sprinkle it with some of the sugar and set aside for a while. Whisk together the baking powder, flour, and sugar in a bowl. Then add the milk and mix well. Mixture will be thin. When the butter has melted and the oven has reached temperature, pour the batter all at once into the dish, then pour the fruit and its juices into the center of the batter. Bake for 50 - 60 minutes, or until the batter is done and the top is golden brown. Serve hot, warm, or at room temperature.
