Along with the Coffee Steak, this was another recipe I found from the Chuck Wagon Gathering that I was excited to try.
This Vinegar Cobbler has no fruit in it but DR tried some and could have swore there were apples in it.
First you mix up some dough and cut it into one inchish squares.
Then you bring to a boil a mixture of sugar, water and apple cider vinegar and add the pieces of dough.
You let that cook until it's thickened....
....add some more dough on top, then bake.
Golden and bubbly.
As I was making this cobbler I really wasn't too confident that it would be very good. But it really does taste just like apple cobbler and unless you knew what was in it, you would think you were eating chunks of apples.
3 c flour
1/4 c. sugar
1 t. salt
1 c. shortening
1/2 ice water
1/4 c. apple cider vinegar
2 c. water
1 c. sugar
Blend dry ingredients; cut shortening to rice grain size3. Continue to cut in and slowly pour in water until rough ball is formed (may not use all water). Let dough ball rest in very cool place for 20 minutes.
While rolling out dough, bring liquid mixture to boil. Separate dough into 3 equal balls. Roll out 2 balls (reserve 1 in cool place) to 1/4 inch thick. Cut into 1 inch squares and slowly add liquid. Boil until liquid thickens, stirring constantly. Pour mixture into 12 inch diameter pan. Roll last dough ball to 1/8" thick and top cobbler. Pierce breathing holes, then bake at 350 until top is golden brown. Let cool and serve.
