READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Rita1652

Being Anemic I did a search for foods high in iron and farina is one of them. I didn't make this yet, it does look good! Recipe courtesy Rocco Dispirito Show: Melting Pot Episode: Mediterranean--My Family Village You can use a single type of berry or a mixture. Sliced fresh peaches or nectarines are delicious combined with the berries. Or use peeled and sliced apples when berries are out of season. A scoop of vanilla ice cream is a delicious accompaniment. I think sundried raisins,cranberries,Dried figs,apricots and prunes would make a nice addition. Which are also high in iron.

i used blueberries, raspberries and strawberries. this was quick and easy but very sweet. i would suggest cutting the sugar to 1/2c and only using 5-6 tbsp of butter, i think it would still have the sweetness but not so overpowering. the topping is great, almost like a crispy shell over the fruit. i did sprinkle the top with cinammon. i will be making this again, next time using less sugar and butter.
