Old Fashioned Fruit Desserts
Nothing beats an old-fashioned fruit dessert to show off the lusciousness of fresh, ripe fruit. In this premiere episode, Martha creates four of her favorites: peach cobbler, blueberry crisp, blackberry buckle, and pear brown betty. Each of these is delicious on its own or paired with creme fraiche or a scoop of rich vanilla ice cream. All are surprisingly simple to make - and perfect for a warm summer night or anytime fruit is at its peak.

Martha takes the viewer through variations, starting with the most traditional and finishing with a version inspired by her travels through Asia.
