While I’m not always a believer that less is more, sometimes I do think less can be better. In certain situations. When it comes to All Things Gob, for instance, I realize there are occasions when a smaller confection might be better-suited to the circumstances at hand. So, I set out to deliver all of the same gob goodness of the original in a package half the size. The result? Gobbles.
In the pic above you can get an approximation of just how big they are. These, of course, are the black cherry lime gobbles. The cherries and spoon next to them are meant to provide scale, btw. They are not my attempt to create an homage to Claus Oldenburg.
And this image is not a suggested wine pairing for these gobbles. It’s actually the juice I extracted from the cherries. This gorgeous stuff is in the gobbles’ batter, along with bits of the fruit shown above, and it’s also in the frosting. The color was so rich that I had to snap a picture of it before I continued baking.
Also, I think in this era of “Food, Inc” not to mention food recalls, that it’s nice to see what goes into your food before it goes into your stomach!
Hopefully all of the gob flavors will take to this smaller size as well as the black cherry lime did. I’ll post pics of those as soon as they’ve cleared the test kitchen. Until then, remember: Gob loves you.
