Appalachian Cobblers

To me, part of the beauty and enjoyment in Appalachian cooking is simplicity. If you look at dishes that hold true in Appalachian style cooking, they use minimal ingredients. Many of the recipes revolve around using what you have and cobblers are no exception to that rule! This recipe has been passed down to me from my Great-Aunt Jean. You talk about a woman that can flat out cook... anything... anytime... anywhere. If you ask her how to make something, she knows the answer! This is her cobbler recipe. It can be used with any style fruit. Apple, strawberry, blackberry, cherry,  peach... You choose your style or mix and go. You can even get a little wild and add to it if you'd like. Sometimes, depending on what I am making and the season, I might add cinnamon, for example. This recipe is going to give you the flexibility you need. Just don't forget the vanilla ice cream! Trust me. Enjoy!

Below is a video on how I make cobbler in my dutch oven during the winter months on our wood stove! Cobblers are a true Appalachian treat for anytime of the year!



  1. I just put this in the oven. I'm using canned peaches and fresh blackberries. I added the juice from the peaches as you suggested above. There's a lot of juice! I hope this turns out.
