What’s Cooking in June?

Posted on by

Each year I get my peaches from Ruston, Louisiana. My Uncle Tommy picks them up on his way back from Homer, Louisiana to visit his daughter Maria. That’s way up in north Louisiana. These are absolutely the most flavorful peaches on earth hands down. Or hands up and the juice drips down your chin and arm after taking a bite. Now that’s the sign of a good peach. I make peach preserves and I leave the stone in the jar. It adds flavor to the preserves and that’s how Grandma Tute always did it. One year I took all my peach peelings and cooked them down and used this as a filling for a peach pie. It was amazing and I wish I had some peach peelings now to recreate that dessert. One of my favorites is peach cobbler. Serve it with ice cream and you will surely be in peach heaven.


Ruston Peach Cobbler


– ½ pound unsalted butter, melted

– 4 cups peeled and sliced Ruston peaches, sprinkled lightly with ½ cup sugar

– 2 cups flour

– 2 cups sugar

– 1 cup milk

– 1 Tbs. baking powder

– pinch of salt

– vanilla ice cream


Pour butter in 9X13 baking dish. Mix flour, sugar, milk, baking powder and salt until well blended. Pour over butter. Sprinkle with sugared fruit. So let’s get this straight. Butter goes first, then batter then fruit. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until set. Serve with vanilla ice cream

Serves about 12 servings
