A Buckle is an idiosyncratically New England fruit cake/pie in the company of Cobblers, Crumbs, Slumps and Crisps. This one was made with Strawberries (RED), Granny Smith Apples (WHITE) and Blueberries (BLUE).
The basic recipe can be found at the New York Times Food section under Summer Berry Buckle. I did not, like Melissa Clark, sprinkle mine with cinnamon before cooking.
I was born on a bitterly cold end of January night in the year 1961. It was seven years to the day after the birth of Oprah Winfrey, and one year before the death of Robert Frost on that same day. Cool associations both.
I was the first child of older parents (my mother was 42). I love the color yellow. I am single, and fascinated with life.
