National Peach Cobbler Day
Peach Cobbler Day goes back to the 50s when the Georgia Peach Council named it as a means to sell more canned peaches. Since then fresh peaches have been used extensively. You don't even have to be extra careful peeling and slicing the peaches. The rougher they look the more cobbled the cobbler appears!
