A Peach Cobbler - Recipe from the Southern States
A Peach Cobbler
Fall is the time for harvest here in Nova Scotia. Apples are just about ready, and peaches are in the farmer’s markets now. this is the perfect time to take advantage of the abundance of this sweet fruit to make all kinds of dishes. One of my favorites is the peach cobbler. Served with ice cream, hot out of the oven.
To assemble have your mese en place ready
I am a big fan of having everything ready and proper seasoning. This elevates your food to the next level and can prevent you from over cooking, or even burning your meals when all you have to do is concentrate on the cook. For the peaches, you need to remove the skin before you slice them. Accomplish this by putting them in boiling water for about 1 minute, then an ice bath. The skin then peels off easily.
