Peach Time in the Garden State

If it's August in South Jersey, it's peach time. My cousins family used to own peach and apple orchards in Mullica Hill. Though those orchards are now sprawling homes the memory of delightful bushels of sweet, fragrant peaches linger on. Peach pie is probably my favorite but cobblers, muffins, jam and ice-cream are much enjoyed too.
Peach recipes abound, but here is a simple not-too-sweet cobbler that just beckons for a scoop of vanilla ice-cream and someone special to share it with.

Childhood Boardwalk Sketch by Louis Levine

What is one of your most vivid childhood memories? How young were you on this occasion? I have a memory and I also a special keepsake of the experience. It was during one of our summer vacations when my family spent a week down the shore with my aunt and her kids. I was sitting as still as I could as the warm evening sea breezes filled the open shop on the Atlantic City Boardwalk where an artist named Louis Levine drew sketches.
