millions of peaches....and gluten-free peach cobbler

Peaches are unusual up here, too cold.  But some places, near lakes, in valleys, can grow them and Ithaca's Indian Creek farm does.  You will recall it is my favorite place.  On the west side of Ithaca, they grow all the fun stuff, like flowers, pears, apples, raspberries.  We picked an IMPOSSIBLE amount of peaches and raspberries Saturday.  It is a favorite moment every summer when we do this, and it would have been very hot picking BUT it was a little overcast and therefore perfect....

You have to pick raspberries first, which is, you know, fairly slow and prickly, then peaches, which takes TEN SECONDS.  No joke! You just reach and grab, they are big, and huzzah! Full basket...

We will eat some plain.  Some of the fruit will be baked, like the peach cobbler **** I baked (YUM) and the rest will go into least 4 batches, 20-30 jars. I think that will be our Sunday....

**** Gary's gluten-free peach cobbler

-preheat to 350, grease an 8 x 8 baking pan, slice 5-8 peaches, depending on size

-in bowl, add one cup gluten-free flour like Bob's red mill all-purpose gf flour, or just rice flour
-add up to 1 cup sugar and lots of cinnamon, stir
-using a pastry knife or what have you, cut in 1/2 cup butter or marg until the whole mixture is nicely crumbly
-lay sliced peaches on the bottom of the pan, cover with flour mixture, bake about 45 minutes until it is starting to look a little golden brown and juicy!

We've enjoyed picking raspberries and strawberries and much of it finds its way into jam. The berry season wasn't as good this year, but still some proves better than none:)

Mmmm, yum. I only have 10 peaches this year. Tiny cobbler!

Look at those bees enjoying some peaches. Nothing better than fresh picked fruit. Enjoy!

Yum! I would have to take a road trip to Georgia to pick peaches but I'm feeling the need for cobbler!
