Looking for a new dessert recipe idea? How about homemade peach cobbler?
I just bought an antique Griswold Dutch Oven on Facebook Marketplace and I was really looking forward to making some rustic Country Recipes in it such as stews and soups, but when I saw this recipe for a Jack Daniels Peach Cobbler made in a cast-iron Dutch Oven I was blown away! I knew I had to try it, as soon as I could! An old friend in Louisiana told me how to season my Griswold circa 1930s from Eerie, PA, Duch Oven by using Hog Fat and baking it in a 500-degree oven for about an hour, about 3 separate times. It turned out great and this ancient Griswold was going to make the perfect cobbler, I just knew it. So I started my cobbler by first putting two pounds of Fredricksburg Fresh Peaches in a bowl, then adding a cup of pure cane sugar, about a teaspoon of Cinamon (to taste), a teaspoon of salt, about a tablespoon and a half of all-purpose flour, and a little bit of lemon juice (a little sour balances the sweet) Then I mixed all that up in my bowl., letting the peaches juice out a bit and then added the magic ingredient, a quarter cup of Jack Daniels! Yum!!!
Then I buttered up my Dutch Oven really well and rolled out, then laid in my piecrust. Some people may use a pie or cake plate at the bottom of the Dutch Oven but I like it strait on the cast-iron,
Then I just added my delicious Jack Daniels peach mixture and baked it in the oven for about an hour, it was exquisite, absolutely delicious. You have to try this!
