Did you know? I didn’t know until a few days ago, but it seemed like a perfect excuse to make a peach cobbler. My Nana, God bless her, made the absolute best peach cobbler. Unfortuately I didn’t learn her secrets before she passed, and although this one was good, I have a few ideas on how to improve upon the recipe I found in the Fannie Farmer cookbook. The filling was a simple combination of peaches, sugar, lemon juice and butter – this is the aspect I’d like to improve upon next time. I’d cut a bit of the sugar, add a little cinnamon, as well as a bit of cornstarch to thicken the juices a bit. The biscuit topping, however was wonderful exactly as written.
I’d love to hear how you plan to celebrate the divine peaches available in your area during National Peach month. We have eight days remaining in the month of August so let’s make the most of them!
