This is a great gluten-free dessert for using overripe and bruised fruit! The picture at right shows an apricot custard (on the left) and a cherry one.
3-4 cups very ripe/overripe/bruised fruit (cherries, apricots, peaches, etc.)
1/6th teaspoon dry stevia (or to taste)
3 tablespoons arrowroot powder (or 1/4 cup flour)
1/2-1 cups soft goat cheese (chevre) or sour cream
Removed pits and any bad parts from fruit, place in pot on stovetop with just a bit of water. Stew on low heat for 30 minutes – 2 hours (approximately). If you let it cool overnight it may congeal a bit, which is fine. If it is still too liquidy, you can spread it on a pan and place in the oven at 250 for an hour or so. The goal is to have a thick fruity soup. Some liquid is ok, but not too much.
In a separate bowl, mix all other ingredients. Then add fruit. Pour into greased cake or pie pan (grease with coconut oil or butter).
Bake for approximately 1 hour at 350 degrees.

We’ll be gathering this Saturday, February 22nd at approximately 5pm to cook and eat and enjoy music and games. We welcome company!
Our next Rainsong Saturday will be on February 8th. We will, in addition to the usual food and games, be hosting a discussion about “Ishmael” and other books by Daniel Quinn, and the ideas they inspire.
These are transformative, coherant, fascinating, and quick to read books! Even if you have not read them, we invite you to come discuss!
If you would rather watch a movie, “What a Way to Go: Life at the end of Empire” produced by Sally Erickson and Timothy Scott Bennett, is an excellent place to get many of the same ideas.
Tim Bennett also gave a very good talk about these ideas here.
You may also be inspired by the info we have here.
Our discussion will be from 2-4pm.
We look forward to seeing you!
We would like to have a book discussion about Sacred Economics by Charles Eisenstein.
Sacred Economics traces the history of money from ancient gift economies to modern capitalism, revealing how the money system has contributed to alienation, competition, and scarcity, destroyed community, and necessitated endless growth.
Today, these trends have reached their extreme – but in the wake of their collapse, we may find great opportunity to transition to a more connected, ecological, and sustainable way of being.
You can download it here.
Want to discuss? Comment, below, to send us an email and we’ll schedule a discussion!
Our next Rainsong Saturday will be on January 4th! Hope to see you then!
On Thanksgiving Friday, the day after the traditional Thanksgiving holiday, Rainsong is holding a Giving Thanks Supper and Storytelling.
People are invited to bring a story to tell and a favorite dish (it does *not* need to be anything on a normal Thanksgiving menu) to share. The common theme or inspiration for the stories will be Giving Thanks. What you are thankful for? How you realized this? What happened to help you to this realization? How do you show your gratitude?
Starting at 4pm, we will gather, eat, sing and tell stories until the wee hours, and sleeping over is encouraged! Children are also very welcome!
Please comment on this page to send us a private email to join our planning Acorn, RSVP or make other inquiries. (Comments are NOT published.)
This event is open to friends of Rainsong, and friends of friends.
We are so grateful for your presence in our lives!
We will *not* be hosting Open Saturdays on November 2nd or 9th or 16th. We’ll see you after that!
