Peaches, Pottery, and Peach Cobbler:
Of all the summer goodies (fruits,veggies) that I’ve been featuring lately – I have to say that Peaches are my favorite!! Peaches are true summer heaven!
There is nothing quite like a perfect peach — Perfect texture, perfect sweetness, perfect juicy balance. But here in the Midwest, it can be difficult to be sure that I’m getting perfect peaches. I’m thrilled that I recently managed to find (and purchase) some oh-so-wonderful perfect peaches.
I think they look soooooo tempting on a long tray made by Minnesota artist, Sandra Shaughnessy! A favorite in my collection, the tray is white stoneware, wonderfully soda fired. The peaches looked so perfect and so inviting, I couldn’t resist devouring one with a few intense chomps! And then, with remaining peaches, making a Peach Cobbler.
The Food – Peach Cobbler:
I really LOVE Peach Cobber!! I tossed the cut-up peaches with a bit of sugar (and lemon juice) and plopped into a Maasha Baking Dish. Then, I mixed up a simple sweet-biscuit cobbler dough — Then dropped spoonfuls of the dough onto the peaches, with a sprinkle of sugar and cinnamon. The ‘cobbles’ really blended together during baking (they usually remain a bit more separated). It didn’t matter what it looked like – It was all sooooo peachy delicious!!
I’ll say it again — I really LOVE Peach Cobbler!!
The Pottery – Maren Kloppmann:
For serving, I thought the cobbler looked fantastic in a square bowl made by Minnesota artist, Maren Kloppmann – Porcelain, satin black glaze with white accent. I think the presentation of cobbler and ice cream with Maren’s minimalist style says it all — Stunning!
And that’s my Peaches-and-Pottery posting — Hope everyone is enjoying perfect peaches!
