In the Kitchen with Brian and Lisa: Peach cobbler

by | Jul 27, 2009

WRAL reporter Brian Shrader and our own Lisa Prince feature seasonal recipes in their Got to Be Good Cookin’ segment using ingredients grown and available right here in North Carolina. We’ll post each video here, along with links to the recipes.

North Carolina is in the thick of its peach season, and this week’s cooking segment shows you how to make a perfect companion to the ice cream recipe in Lisa’s latest Kitchen Sink column. Watch Lisa help WRAL’s Brian Shrader master an easy peach cobbler recipe in his first go-round in the Got to Be NC kitchen.

You can find a printable version of the recipe on the Got to Be Good Cookin’ site, as well as a great way to easily peel those peaches to cut down on preparation time:

Bring a pot of water to a boil.  Turn it off and gently submerge several peaches with a slotted for 45 seconds.  Fix a bowl with ice and water.  After 45 seconds remove the peaches and submerge them into the ice bath for 30 seconds.  Remove the peaches and with a knife, slice through the skin down the entire peach.  Then pull off the skin.  So your peaches don’t discolor right away, re-submerge them into the ice bath for a few minutes.  If the peeling doesn’t come off easily, simply put them back into the hot water and the ice bath again.
