THE COLOR PURPLE


This is what happens when you experiment with scones!  I had a carton of ripe blackberries I needed to use.  I was in the mood for scones, so put the blackberries and some pecan pieces in my scone recipe.

The result is "PURPLE"  scones.  They tasted delicious, in fact almost like cobbler, but the color purple in food should be limited to cabbage or beets...HaHa.

Nevertheless...they are disappearing one at a time!  Do you experiment with recipes??

  1. Oh, these would be delicious, regardless of the color! I love blackberries. I don't bake as much as I once did. I had to laugh back at Christmas. Our neighbor had just moved in and they were "trying" to prepare a holiday dinner. She rang the doorbell and asked for flour for gravy. I told her I did not have any. She said she would just take cornstarch. I told her I did not have any!!!! She must have thought we were pitiful!!! lol

    1. The actually look more purple in person than the picture. I have to say they were moist and really did taste good.

  3. Purple is my favourite colour so I love it! And it certainly isn't a solid purple so I think it adds some fruity flair. My girlfriend used to cook chicken and beets together. I have to say that purple chicken is kinda weird.

    1. I love berry cobbler, but when I make it I use pie crust, layers and layers, and I wasn't in the mood to make pie crust. HaHa...It's how my mom made it. We had a row of berries, so had it often.

  6. My only experiment with eating new foods, not cooking them. When I think of purple food, its not beets and cabbage its desserts.

    1. Then you would have liked the scones, Jim. I wish you lived closer....I'd have you as my "tester".

  7. Thanks for your prayers and good wishes. Your scones look delicious. We treat ourselves to about one a week, usually from Starbucks. Not as good as home made, but then we would eat them all and that wouldn't be good either.

    1. Scones have become one of my favorite things to bake...and I do give most of them away. Or they freeze well, so individually wrap for later. Hope you are feeling better. Love and Hugs
