"Thus all the tithe of the land, of the seed of the land or of the fruit of the tree, is the LORD'S; it is holy to the LORD." Leviticus 27:30
Until we have fruit trees again, we're buying fruit from the local grocer or fruit stands. Right now, Safeway has peaches on sale: 10 lbs for $10!! Who can pass that up??
One of my special blogger friends, Sue, recently harvested peaches from her newly acquired peach tree. Here's the recipe I promised her. I got this years ago and it is one of the best cobblers I've ever had. Enjoy!
1 c sugar
2 T flour
1/4 t ground nutmeg
4 c peeled, sliced, fresh peaches
1 c sugar
1 c flour
1 t baking powder
1 t salt
1/3 c cold butter
1 egg, beaten
Filling...Combine sugar, flour, nutmeg. Add peaches*. Stir to coat. Dump into greased 11x7x2 baking pan**.
Topping...Combine sugar, flour, baking powder, salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in egg. Spoon over peaches. Option: sprinkle nutmeg or cinnamon on top.
Bake at 375 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until topping is golden brown.
* I regularly substitute a large can of peaches from the grocer using the juice and all in a 9x13 pan.
** I prefer cast iron or stoneware which does not need greased once seasoned.
