    (Note, sometimes I only use half the amount of sugar in this step just to reduce my sugar intake.)
    2 cups organic sugar
  • Next, spoon the fruit mixture over the batter, the batter should begin to puff up around the fruit.

Quick trick to remove skin from stone fruits…Takes 3 minutes!

  • You must use semi-soft peaches for this to work. If using hard unripe peaches, this will become a mess.
  • Using a paring knife (or any small knife), score the fruit by making an “X” shaped cut to the bottom of the fruit.
  • Bring water to a boil and carefully place the scored fruit into the boiling water for 1 minute.
  • Remove the fruit from the boiling water and immediately transfer them to an ice bath for 1 minute.
  • Peel the skin off the fruit and slice.


More About This Recipe

Other key points:

Comparing homemade peach cobbler to store-bought versions can highlight significant differences, particularly in sugar content. 

Homemade Peach Cobbler:

Sugar Content: This recipe uses a total of 2 cups of sugar. Given the serving size, it roughly translates to about 24 grams of sugar per serving if divided into 8 servings. However, by reducing the sugar added to the fruit mixture by half, you can cut down the sugar content to around 18 grams per serving.Store-Bought Peach Cobbler:
Sugar Content: Store-bought peach cobblers can vary significantly in sugar content, but many commercially prepared cobblers often contain high amounts of added sugars, preservatives, and high fructose corn syrup. On average, a serving can contain around 30-40 grams of sugar, depending on the brand and recipe.


Homemade Advantage: The homemade version allows you to control the amount of sugar added, potentially reducing the overall sugar content. Additionally, you avoid preservatives and can use organic and fresh ingredients.
Store-Bought Disadvantage: Typically higher in sugar and includes preservatives, artificial flavors, and sometimes trans fats.
Overall, homemade peach cobbler offers a healthier option with the flexibility to adjust sugar content to your preference, making it a better choice for maintaining a balanced diet, especially for women over 50 looking to manage their sugar intake.
