Just peachy

It's that time of year......the peaches are ready! When I lived in Utah my sister had a peach tree, she was my main supplier. Every year she would bring me a box of peaches. I would cut them up make cobbler, freeze some for smoothies or peach daiquiris! I looked forward to it every year.

Now I have to buy them.....We have a Farmer's Market in our village twice a week. I went in search of peaches and walked away empty handed they wanted $4 for 4 peaches....I need 8-10 to make cobbler!

After a another week of sulking about the sky high peach prices I went back and found a farmer selling smaller peaches for a more reasonable price...$8.00 and 20 small to medium peaches. They were perfect and perfectly ripe....just enough for 2 peach cobblers!

Or one peach cobbler and 1 mix of peach daiquiris! 

Peach Cobbler Recipe

8-10 peaches  (peeled and cut up)
2 cups sugar
1 stick of butter
3/4 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla

Mix peaches and 1 cup of sugar in a bowl.  (Set aside)  
Put butter in a deep pan (13x9) and set in a 350' oven to melt.  
Stir the remaining ingredients in a bowl and pour over the melted butter.  (Do not stir)   Place peaches over the top.  (Do not stir) 
Bake 1 hr. or until the crust is a golden brown.  
Batter rises on top during the baking.

I LOVE peaches. My Dad began his grocery in 1945, dedicated to selling the freshest produce. It takes 7 years for a peach tree to bear fruit so imagine the poor farmer trying to earn a living. Peaches are such a treat and that cobbler looks lovely~

I was just thinking today to bake a peach pie. Came home to an invite at the mayor's home for an apple picking party on his land. I guesss it will be apple pie instead of peach. :)
