Peach Season ==== Peach Cobbler Recipe

Here in Southern Illinois there are many peach orchards to be found. April 13th helps celebrate the orchards by sharing the national day of peach crisps. So what will the peach crop be like this spring?? It is a wait to be seen type of game with the weather and mother nature at the head position. Depending on what temps are present, how much rain , etc... will depend on how many peaches as well as if they are juicy or not.

The farmers start to figure out how well the crop will do in February. The weather in Southern Illinois can be quite challenging to years with freezing temps that lat to days to warmer months. This year the weather has been rather nice while there were cold temps it was not a severe freeze. Yet, the worry is not over as farmers and orchard workers have seen years where cold temps were severe and many buds were lost due to a freeze.  What can be even worst is when severe cold temps are backed up by a fast warm up

Hopefully Mother Nature will cooperate and there will be large beautiful peaches that will go great in old fashioned peach cobbler

5 peaches , peeled, cored and sliced (about 4 cups)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
For the batter:
6 Tablespoons butter
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
ground cinnamon

If you are using fresh peaches
Add the sliced peaches, sugar and salt to a saucepan and stir to combine. 

Cook on medium heat for just a few minutes, until the sugar is dissolved and helps to bring out juices from the peaches. Remove from heat and set aside.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Slice butter into pieces and add to a 9x13 inch baking dish. Place the pan in the oven while it preheats, to allow the butter to melt. Once melted, remove the pan from the oven.

In a large bowl mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the milk, just until combined. Pour the mixture into the pan, over the melted butter and smooth it into an even layer.
Spoon the peaches and juice (or canned peaches, if using) over the batter. Sprinkle cinnamon generously over the top.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 38-40 minutes. Serve warm, with a scoop of ice cream, if desired.
