Fresh peaches made their debut at the Grants Pass Grower's Market this Saturday and peach cobbler is a summer must!
Feel free to use this recipe for berry cobblers as well. August in Southern Oregon brings on some of the best wild blackberry picking there is.
8 fresh, ripe (large) peaches (peeled and sliced)
1 cup sugar
3 tblsp AP flour
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 & 1/2 cups AP flour
2 tblsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup cold butter
1 large egg, slightly beaten
3 tblsp milk
3 tblsp sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F. Butter a 13 X 9 baking dish.
Combine sugar, flour and nutmeg. Stir in sliced peaches. Pour mixture into baking dish.
In a large bowl combine 1 and 1/2 cups flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in cold butter with a fork or pastry blender until butter is absorbed by flour mixture. Stir in egg and milk until just barely combined. Crumble this mixture over peaches. Combine 3 tblsp of sugar and 1/4 tsp of cinnamon, sprinkle over cobbler. Bake 40-45 minutes. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or creme fraiche.
For berry cobbler use 3 pints of fresh berries. You can also use plums, nectarines and apricots.

- A dedicated foodie, with a passion for the best food. Favorite food crushes include; Cheese, Wine, Breads, Seafood, anything made with eggs, ...there's actually no point in a list, there isn't much out there I don't have a crush on. Transplanted from the Northeast at age 18, a whole new frontier of food was opened up to me. I have fished for Salmon, hunted for mushrooms, cracked open fresh oysters from the sea and devoured them on the spot. Figs, pears, peaches, so many indigenous jewels! I dedicate this BLOG to the endless variety this region provides. My hope is to live here for a very long time & continue to discover and experience it's unique bounty! Alas, my life has now taken me to Cincinnati, OH where the food culture is like none I have ever experienced.
