Wash Day Peach Cobbler Recipe | The Atria Kitchen
Posted on March 11, 2014 by Taylor Rhea
When I was a child, Monday was wash day and the laundry was done in our back yard. The laundry equipment consisted of a large black pot over a bed of fire to heat the water, a broomstick to stir the dirty clothes, lye soap and two galvanized washtubs filled with water for rinsing the clothes. It was a sunup-to-sundown chore, leaving no time to make a complicated dessert. This recipe is quick and easy. The fragrance of it baking lingers in my memory.
