Peach cobbler with fresh peaches? Mrs. Potato Dick Madagascar 20356 posts

I made this a few months ago, but since it didn't have the syrup that canned peaches do, the entire thing was pretty dry. Is this the way it's supposed to be? Is there something I can add to the fresh peaches that'll make it more gooey and stuff?
I loved the fresh peaches in it, though. It tasted great.

Sugar water, maybe? It would carmalize as it cooked.

Did you put them in raw? Cook them in butter and lemon juice first to make them all gooey. Then mix it with your sugar and spices and put it in your crust.

That's what I was thinking. Maybe make a simple syrup on the stove first...

Ahh, that sounds yummy. The recipe I used didn't say to do anything but put them in raw. It turned out like peach bread instead of cobbler.

Ooh yeah it is good. A simple syrup would be way too sweet IMO when you're already adding sugar and cinnamon and nutmeg afterwards. You can use any citrus juice, I've substituted orange juice when I didn't have lemons before. Its like 1/2 cup butter and 1 cup juice.

yeah i would use apple juice with a bit of lemon to preserve color and cinamon and tad bit of sugar for a bit of flavor. not much at all though...just as like a seasoning in the juice.

I would try a different recipe. I always put mine in raw and it comes out juicy everytime. Did the recipe call for butter?
