Uptown Westerville is a Place for Fresh Air Shopping

It's Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market Wednesday!

Ahhhh, fresh Ohio-grown peaches, fresh-picked sweet corn, and a selection of fabulous produce!

Fresh produce, like peaches and tomatoes, is just great sliced and served all by itself. But if you want to go a little fanicer try these recipes:

Paula Deen's Peach Cobbler from

4 cups peeled, sliced peaches
2 cups sugar, divided
1/2 cup water
8 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
1 1/2 cups milk
Ground cinnamon, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine the peaches, 1 cup sugar, and water in a saucepan and mix well. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat.

Put the butter in a 3-quart baking dish and place in oven to melt.

Mix remaining 1 cup sugar, flour, and milk slowly to prevent clumping.

Pour mixture over melted butter.

Do not stir.

Spoon fruit on top, gently pouring in syrup.

Sprinkle top with ground cinnamon, if using.

Batter will rise to top during baking.

Bake for 30 to 45 minutes.

To serve, scoop onto a plate and serve with your choice of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

Bobby Flay's Grilled Corn on the Cob with Dill Butter from
