Poorly lit Peach Cobber

After yesterday's poll I think you are all batshit crazy. Cherry is the best. However, I made a peach cobbler when I saw the juicy new peaches at the green grocer's. They were outstandingly sweet on their own but I added brown sugar anyway and damn it was good. Maybe this is a tip that everyone knows but: to peel peached quickly (I mean it will take you all of 3 seconds) blanch the peaches in boiling water for about 45 seconds, then remove with a slotted spoon, cool and peel. I am all for laziness but the energy you spend blanching will save you a ton of energy trying to cold peel the things. My other time saving tip: I didn't slice them, I just pulled the fruit into bite sized pieces with my hands right into the baking dish, it saved precious juice as well.
