Group active since Mon, Jan 28, 2013
This group is for anyone who homesteads or is just trying to live a more self sufficient lifestyle. Share your recipes and tips for the homestead.
My hubby and I live on a small farm have goats, horses, dogs, cats and soon, chickens. We garden and can. I am also trying my hand at cheesemaking !
We would love to hear your ideas for the homestead. Welcome ! Come sit a spell with us.

Unable to make traditional suet puddings due to lack of suitable ingredients and cooking equipment, the settlers instead covered a stewed filling with a layer of uncooked plain biscuits or dumplings, fitted together. When the dish is fully cooked, the surface has the appearance of a cobbled street. The name may also derive from the fact that the ingredients are “cobbled” together. Some cobbler recipes resemble a thick crusted, deep-dish pie with both top and bottom crust.
Peach Cobbler day was created by the Georgia Peach Council in the 1950’s to sell canned peaches.
*There are 419 calories in 1 cup of Peach Cobbler.
In 2007, the world’s largest peach cobbler was made at the Georgia Peach Festival. It consisted of:
•90 lbs of butter
•150 lbs of sugar
•150 lbs of flour
•32 gallons of milk
•75 gallons of peaches
If you want a really simple recipe, here's what is known as the "Cuppa" recipe from my area... Delicious warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top !
