Foodie Question

In an attempt to conserve food, I decided to cook my somewhat mushy blackberries (those things are too expensive to waste). I added an apple (also a little mushy), cinnamon, a little almond milk….

Pretty, huh?

And then I added pickled cabbage. The famous last words, right? I actually saw a recipe for this combination on Pinterest.

To be fair, the cabbage wasn’t the problem. After mixing all the ingredients together, I decided to add some almond extract.Β I’m guilty of never measuringΒ in the kitchen so I accidentally added too much extract!

So, I’ve got a bunch of cooked fruit that needs a little tweaking and reasoning. Maybe I could make it into a pie?

Any ideas on what to do with this or should I just toss it and move on to the next? πŸ˜€

  1. hmm this is interesting…could you use it to top ice cream? Or in yogurt? Maybe in some oats?

    Blend it up into a smoothie with some yogurt. Everything taste better in a smoothie πŸ˜€

  3. fruit crisp – add oats, flour, brown sugar combo on top and bake it. Can’t be bad! lol…and add some peanut butter to the crumb mix!

    You are awesome. I would never have thought of that with my soggy blackberries.

  5. I would probably do a fruit crisp, use it in oatmeal or make it into a smoothie. I almost never measure when I make crisps and apple blackberry and almond extract would be a good conbination.

  6. That is a very unique concoction! haha I liked what someone said before about a fruit crisp. Or mixed in greek yogurt, really you could do anything with it!

  7. I have to admit that you completely lost me at pickled cabbage πŸ˜† But yeah, too much extract can definitely be a problem… especially almond, since it’s so strong. I’d definitely try to turn it into a pie. You could even try adding some store bought unsweetened pie filling or even more fruit just to try and balance out the tastes a bit.

    Hahahahahaha I am like you I HATE to wast food, but sometimes ya just gotta call it and throw in the towel

    Maybe a pie? Or some turnovers? Or a crisp with an oatmeal streusel topping?

    Ugh, too much almond extract is pretty hard to overcome 😦 But I like the suggestions of using it to top oatmeal–or maybe yogurt.

  12. Too much almond extract has been my downfall before!!!

    Definitely an interesting combination…everything looks so good on pinterest though! I like the fruit crisp idea, or maybe try a buckle or cobbler recipe. A nice doughy crust might help “absorb” some of the intense flavours πŸ™‚

    I know others have said it already, but definitely try the yogurt mess. Or you could even make it into a fruity quesadilla πŸ™‚

  15. I would add more fruit and definitely make it into a pie or something!

  16. Maybe you could add a bunch more fruit to dilute the extract’s flavors? Or maybe add something really bland to tone it down? Oatmeal?

  17. Oooh my vote is def make it into a pie! I love pies! That fruit looks so delicious!

  18. […] you all for your creative ideas on how to use my crazy fruit concoction! I’ll be sure to post what I […]
