A Dozen Recipes Every North Carolinian Should Know-- Part 7: Strawberry Sonker With Dip

Sonker is the signature dish of Surry Conty.  This large, juicy cobbler can be made with almost any fruit, and even sweei potatoes.  During the sunny days of spring, it is hard to beat warm strawberry sonker topped with a generous pour of the sweet, milky sauce known as dip.

There is even an annual Sonker festival at the Edwards-Franklin House near Mt. Airy sponsored by the Surry Count Historical Society the first Saturday in October.  To guide folks through the rest of the year, someone mapped out a Surry County Sonker Trail.

Looks real good, but I don't know if I would have room for sonker after eating one of those great porkchop sandwiches at Snappy Lunch.
