The farmer’s market is bursting with delicious fruits and vegetables right now. The kids and I love to go to the market a couple times in the summer, mainly for fruit (and lots of free samples!). We have plenty of vegetables in our own garden, but we don’t grow peaches, my absolute favorite fruit.
We left the market last week quite sweaty (it has been SOOO hot) and heavy-laden with melons, peaches, berries and corn on the cob. I had a nibble of the corn and it was amazingly sweet and crisp. I wish I could eat a whole ear of that summery goodness.
Back home, as I stared at all my lovely produce, I was inspired to turn the peaches and blueberries into a cobbler. The peach cobbler of my pre-paleo days was made with a pie crust base, lots of sugar sweetened fruit, butter and more pastry on top. It was absolutely the taste of summer.
Paleo cobbler will not be the same for sure, but could it still be an amazing summer dessert? You bet!
Instead of making a pastry crust, I opted for a crumbley streusel type topping. There is so much flavor in this cobbler you’ll have a hard time putting down your spoon!
There are some good peaches in the grocery store, but if you have a farmer’s market nearby, search out some fresh from the farm peaches and blueberries. You won’t regret the extra effort.
