Have You Tried Sonker Yet?
Surry County is said to be the only place where this delicacy is made, and Sonker is part of the fabric of life in our region. Family recipes have been passed down for generations, and we celebrate this delicious treat with an annual Sonker Festival held the first Saturday in October since 1980.

You, too, can experience this local delicacy via the Surry Sonker Trail. The trail stops include eight places countywide that offer this authentic Southern delicacy on their regular menu.
 

 
Sonker is similar to a pot pie or a cobbler. It comes about by blending fruit and unshaped dough, often sweetened with sugar or sourghum cane molasses.

It can be accompanied by a dip (glaze) made of cream, sugar or molasses, and a few drops of vanilla extract. This is usually poured over the sonker in the dish.

Popular fruits used in sonker include: blackberries, peaches, raspberries, huckleberries and apples. Sweet potatoes are also used.

It is believed that folks in Surry County made sonker as a way to stretch the usage of their fruit in tough times, or as a way to utilize fruit that is toward the end of its ripeness.
