Southern Peach Cobbler Recipe, Hints & Videos
Cobblers are traditional one-pan dishes from the UK and America; although they are generally made from fresh fruit in the US and meat in the UK. Going as far back as the colonial times, cobblers were being made as a way to make a thrifty and sweet dessert. Cobblers are made by pouring fruit filling over a batter that then rises through the fruit to create a crust-type of topping.
Peach trees are original to China and Persia (now Iran) and were brought to the US during colonial times by George Minifie from England tin the early seventeenth century. He planted them on his estate; Buckland in Virginia. Thomas Jefferson had peach trees at Monticello, but it wasn't until the 19th century that peaches became a commercial crop in the United States. Southern Peach Cobbler combines the colonial tradition with a native fruit to create a delicious and decadent dessert.
