Peaches, peaches

DSCF7179Edgefield came to town this weekend and brought peaches. We’ll have none of those wimpy little Georgia things around here.

If you are lucky, I will share some wtih you. Meanwhile, I  cut them up for breakfast with lemon yogurt and granola, eat them all day long standing over the sink with juice running down my elbows, and, if I’m feeling really decadent, have some in the evening with some Mayfield Vanilla Ice Cream.

Here’s an easy-to-remember cobbler topping from Edgefield’s Episcopal Epicurean cookbook, from an Edgefield peach farm family:

Brunie’s Peach Cobbler
Cut up peaches, sprinkle with sugar and a little cinnamon, and simmer slowly for a few minutes on the stove until the peaches soften.

Melt 1 stick butter
Whisk in 1 egg
Stir in . . .
1 cup flour
1 t baking powder
1 cup sugar
1 t vanilla

Drop by spoonful over peaches and bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. I always sprinkle the top with cinnamon-sugar about 10 minutes before it’s finished.

    Some of the peaches in my basket were even bigger than those. Big as grapefruit! MW

    I took a picture like that of Betsy, Sarah Mims and Wilma standing in front of my fire place and I’d share it with you if I was smart enough to know how to. I wish one of us was free enough to make another peach run to Edgefield — don”t forget how good those frozen peach daquiris are.
    EDGEFIELD PEACHES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!OMG!
