National Day Flavor

Get your shopping list ready!  National Day Calendar brings you the upcoming ways to celebrate your favorite foods for the week ahead.  This week you’ll need a variety of cheeses to make it through.  Swing through the baking aisle and the bakery, too.  On April 13, it’s ala carte with Make Lunch Count Day, but we’ll sweeten it up with a peach cobbler.  Spiral ham rounds out the week, and don’t count your eggs before they’re hatched.  Well, for some celebrations they shouldn’t hatch at all. Let’s get started!



National Peach Cobbler Day is observed annually on April 13.  It recognizes a delicious dessert that originated during the 19th century.

Unable to make traditional suet puddings due to lack of suitable ingredients and cooking equipment, the settlers instead covered a stewed filling with a layer of uncooked plain biscuits or dumplings, fitted together.  When the dish is fully cooked, the surface looks like a cobbled street.  The name may also derive from the fact that the ingredients are “cobbled” together. Some recipes resemble a thick crusted, deep-dish pie with both top and bottom crust.

Flavor of...Cobbler!

Cobblers showcase seasonal fruits but are a way to used up home canned fruits.  They can even glam up factory canned fruits. They are simpler to make than pies, and yet garner the same satisfying reward.

We featured caramel on National Day Flavor last week. If you have any left, or if you fancy making more, drizzle a little (a lot) over your cobbler for another layer of flavor. If you prefer maple syrup, that’s another excellent topping for this dessert. Just reduce the sugar in the recipes to avoid sweet overkill.

Ice cream goes well with cobblers summer, fall and winter.

Prepare your cobbler in individual ramekins before baking. Your effort will make your guests will feel special, and you will have elevated the humble cobbler to a whole new level.
