Although it’s a crazy busy week for my husband at work, he was able to get today off, and you know what that means… Family Fun Day! One of the many things we did today was go peach picking at Lawrence Farms Orchard.
We love peaches, and it’s so much fun to pick them fresh straight off the tree. Lawrence Farms offers two types of peaches: yellow and white. We asked what the difference was and was told that the white are slightly sweeter. So, my husband and I figured we would get a mix of both the yellow and white, and off we went into the orchard.
Honestly, we had no idea what we ended up picking, but that made it even more fun because we knew it would be a surprise when we got home and started baking with the peaches. We ended up buying more than we meant to because we were having so much fun, but no worries. We are going to cut them up and freeze them so we can use them in the future. So, what to do with so many peaches? Make Southern Peach Cobbler of course!
I found a gluten-free recipe online to make Southern Peach Cobbler, and of course, me being me, I had to make my own little tweaks to it. I hesitate to call this recipe Paleo because it does use Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten-Free Baking Flour which isn’t technically Paleo. And, if you do follow Paleo very strictly, it does contain milk. So I’m just classifying it as a gluten-free recipe.
What little tweaks did I make? For this recipe I swapped out white sugar for coconut sugar. I don’t like using white sugar as it’s highly processed. Coconut sugar is more natural and healthier.
Coconut Sugar: Coconut Sugar is derived from the coconut. It scores low on the glycemic index and also provides vitamins and minerals.
“Coconut sugar isn’t a nutritional superfood, but it does offer more vitamins and minerals than white table sugar. It contains trace amounts of vitamin C, potassium, phosphorous, magnesium, calcium, zinc, iron and copper. Coconut sugar also provides small amounts of phytonutrients, such as polyphenols, flavonoids and anthocyanidin, and antioxidants. You’ll also find the B vitamin inositol, often used as a mood booster, in coconut sugar.”
The next ingredient I swapped out was regular milk for raw milk. I am a big believer in raw milk and all the additional nutritional benefits it offers. To read more about raw milk and why I use it, check out my post Take A Stand… Live Off The Land!
Two other swaps I made was substituting table salt for Himalayan Pink Sea Salt and regular butter for Kerry Gold Grass-Fed Butter.
Grass-Fed Butter: Grass-fed butter comes from cows that are only fed grass, never grains. It is entirely different than conventional butter and contains nutrients for your body. It has anti-inflammatory properties, high in CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) which can help combat cancer, and contains medium-chain triglycerides which can boost your metabolism and immune system. Grass-fed butter has many more health benefits besides these listed. For more information on grass-fed butter check out Dr. Axe’s website.
“Pink Himalayan salt is often said to be the most beneficial as well as the cleanest salt available on this planet today. It has all kinds of nutritional and therapeutic properties, not to mention culinary uses.
Pink Himalayan sea salt contains over 84 minerals and trace elements, including calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper and iron, so it does more than just make your food taste better.”
Once all my swaps were made, it was time to start baking! And, it turns out we did get some white peaches after all! The Gluten-Free Southern Peach Cobbler came out absolutely AMAZING and we will definitely be making this recipe again.
If you have an abundance of peaches and don’t know what to do with them, try making Gluten-Free Southern Peach Cobbler. Serve it à la mode and you’ve got the perfect summer time treat!
