Quick & simple peach cobbler

My sweet neighbor gifted us with the option to pick as many peaches as we’d like.

Let me advise that this recipe is not for the health conscious. Sometimes it feels good to chow down on some sugary sweetness.

My kids picked bags and bags full of peaches. The chickens got some. We ate a ton. Yet I was left with quite the peach supply. And I hate to waste anything. Especially free produce!

So I whipped up this delicious and quite simple peach cobbler in my beloved skillet. Skillet cooking makes everything better. The less dishes the better too 😉

Ingredients

5-6 peaches peeled (I skipped the peeling I wasn’t in the mood for the full peach bath)

I use thieves by Young Living to clean all of our fruits and vegetables and even eggs!

1 cup melted butter

1 cup sugar (I substituted with coconut sugar it’s all I had)

1/2 cup flour

3 Tbsp brown sugar

1/4 cup milk

Directions:

Slice and peel if desired all the peaches. Put them into the skillet. Pour melted butter over the top.

In a separate bowl combine flour, white sugar, milk in a bowl. Stir well pour over peach and butter mixture. Sprinkle with brown sugar.

Bake for one hour at 375.

It was as easy as that.

And so very tasty. The chickens enjoyed the leftovers as well!

Hope you enjoy as much as we did!

How to naturally increase Iron absorption with skillet cooking

Symptoms of low Iron

  1. Unusual Tiredness
  2. Paleness
  3. Shortness of Breath
  4. Headache and Dizziness
  5. Heart Palpatations
  6. Dry & Damaged hair& skin
  7. Restless Legs (which can result in poor sleep)
  8. Brittle or spoon shaped fingernails
  9. More frequent infections
  10. Feeling anxious

These are just a few symptoms associated with low iron levels.

When EBE was about 2 years old we started consistently talking to the doctors about his inability to sleep.  He was always tired yet never slept.  We referred to a psychiatrist who talked about a lot of nonsense and pushed prescription medication.  Needless to say I got up and left in the middle of his prescription medication rant.

I did what mama’s do best and started researching and demanding blood work.

He did in fact have low iron levels which made sense considering I could barely get him to eat anything but a milk and graham cracker diet.

Fast forward to today.  I cook almost everything I can in a cast iron skillet.

Did you know a cast iron skillet has the ability to naturally increase your iron?

Scrambling eggs in a new iron skillet increased the iron content from 1.5 mg to almost 5mg

I will warn you that children under the age of three can in fact get to much iron, resulting in iron toxicity so I’d encourage you to speak with your Doctor or do you research beforehand.

Plus I think everything tastes better in the cast iron skillet.
