Cobbler from Thirty Year Old Fruit

cobblerCobbler from 30 year old dehydrated fruit. We were rotating out storage when we came across some #10 cans my husband had .We decided to check their condition. The peaches were in good condition and tasted like they had been canned yesterday.  The apples slices were about 10 years old. After re-hydrating them both fruits still tasted and smelled good so I added ingredients and made a cobbler. This was taken to my husband’s mans night out and nothing came home but the remaining whip cream.

Prepare a 13X10 pan with cooking spray

  • 4 cups dehydrated peaches
  • 4 cups dehydrated sliced apple
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • ½ cup raisins (optional)
  • Add ¼ to ½ tsp. of powered cloves or cinnamon

Once the peaches and apple slices are re-hydrated, pour off most of the remaining water; put all of the ingredients in a cooking pot and cook until heated. Pour into pan.


  • 1 cube butter ½ cup melted
  • ½ cup flour
  • 1 cup oatmeal (Regular)
  • ½ to 1 cup brown sugar

Mix together flour, oatmeal and brown sugar together; pour melted butter in center and mix until ingredients are damp. Sprinkle on top of cobbler.

Bisquick topping:

Make recipe for drop biscuits but add extra milk so you can pour batter over cobbler.

Cook at 350 degrees until the top is nicely brown.

Our next can to try is macaroni and chili. The age of the #10 can I think is the same or older. Looks pretty bad so will let you know soon how that turns out.
