Corn Butter


We are headed into the last stretch of summer – do you have plans for labor day?  Maybe a last big summer fling?  Corn on the cob is such a staple for summer parties and has always been my favorite.  I loved picking corn out of the field and seeing it on the table for dinner.  No matter how you fix it, grill it, boil it, bake it – these flavored Corn Butters will definitely turn that corn into a party!    I’ve included three that will spice up your fun!

Blackberry-Peach Buttermilk Cobbler

Blackberry-Peach Buttermilk Cobbler


Fresh fruit cobbler is always a favorite at my house.  In fact I’ve found the perfect way to gather your family.  Once you pop it in the oven, they all start hanging in the kitchen {generally with a spoon in hand!}.  There are also a couple rules at our house about cobbler.  First, they are best eaten warm out of the oven, and second ice cream is a must.
