Grandma Bray`s Peach Cobbler
From Jim

When I was a kid of 12 back in the early 50`s, My dad was a minister, that work out in the fields in the San Joaquin Valley.  Heritage Recipe for Peach CobblerPicking peaches was just one of the jobs he did, during the summer to make money for school clothes.  I, as big as I was, I would join him doing that. I dearly loved doing that, being with him all day. He was my hero, the person I really looked up to, even though that I could look him straight in the eye, like I said I was big for my age being 6 ft 3 inches and him being 6-4.  The fuzz didnít bother me like most people. One of the neatest things was when the owner came to pick up the full boxes of peaches. He didnít use a tractor, he used a team of horses and a trailer. It always felt fantastic to ride in to the  place with your dad riding on that trailer. Some times the owner would let me drive the horses. and we would take a bucket of peaches home to eat and let my mother make her peach cobbler. San Joaquin Valley is in central California, that where all the people came during the depression in the 1930`s.
That sure brings back memories.....
