Thew Elementary School Plants Peach Trees!

On Friday, May 13th, a group of students from Thew Elementary School walked over to the Escalante Community Garden, and planted 4 Peach trees in the garden.  Under the leadership of Gretchen Reinhardt, the students frollicked around the garden, ate some radishes from the garden, and rolled up their sleeves to plant the trees.  Here are some pictures from that wonderful morning:

For those of you that are salivating at the thought of fresh peaches, check out this yummy recipe for peach cobbler:

Peach Cobbler
  • 4 cups fresh peaches, peeled and sliced
  • 2 cups sugar, divided
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 cups self rising flour
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1.)  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2.)  Combine the peaches, 1 cup sugar, and water in a saucepan and mix well.  Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes.  Remove from heat.
3.)  Put the butter in a 3 quart baking dish and place in the oven to melt.
4.)  Mix remaining 1 cup sugar, flour, and milk slowly to prevent clumping.  Pour mixture over melted butter.  Do not stir.  Spoon fruit on top, gently pouring in syrup.  Sprinkle with cinnamon.  The batter will rise to the top during baking.  Bake for 30-45 minutes.
5.)  Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, if desired.
