Happy Tuesday everyone. What a beautiful Memorial Day Weekend we had. A time of reflection and remembrance as well as a time for family and fun.
Speaking of fun, as you may have noticed, there wasn’t a blog last week due to vacations and fun happenings. But this week we are all back on track and ready to
get back to business.
And this week I’m in the recipe hack business. Ya’ll I discovered this big jar of
peaches on the shelf in Yesterday’s gift shop. Had Patti’s in the label so I knew they would be good. It’s a big 32oz jar and inside is the sweetest, tastiest peaches. And I have just had so much fun using them in different ways. I wasn’t thinking at the time of using it for a blog, and I didn’t take pictures, but I’m sure that won’t be a problem, because in this case, a picture may be worth a thousands words, but just one taste is worth more than that picture.
First thing, because I just couldn’t resist. The easy, peasy, 1 cup cobbler recipe. You know the one, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup self-rising flour, 1 cup milk and a stick of butter.
Preheat your oven to 350, add stick of butter to your pan or baking dish and let it melt as your oven heats. Mix the sugar, flour and milk together, just enough to get it blend. Don’t mix too much. After butter is melted in your pan, remove dish from oven and pour peaches, including juice, into baking dish. Then pour your batter mixture over the peaches. Return dish to oven and bake about 40 minutes, until golden brown. You can’t get any yummier or any easier than this. If you want to make you southern ancestors proud. You dip that cobbler in a bowl and top it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, sprinkle with a little cinnamon and enjoy every single bite.
And you may just have a few of those luscious peaches left in that jar. You could take some of that ice cream and put it in a blender with those peaches, blend just a bit, leaving visible chunks of peaches, pour it into individual containers and freeze. You will have a yummy little treat for another time. I have been known to scoop some of that peach ice cream into a glass and fill said glass with some peach wine. But that’s just me. If you are not near Patti’s those marvelous peaches can be ordered online from pattis1880s.com
Until Next Time,
