Peach Cobbler – Courtesy of Paula Deen



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.

Kazanlik Rose

September 6, 2014 — Leave a comment

Kazanlik is perhaps the most sought after of Damask roses, also known as Trigintipetala. It was introduced in Germany by Dr. Georg Dieck in 1889 as ‘Rosa damascena var. trigintipetala’ and is now grown in great quantity in Bulgaria, known for rose exportation afar.



The flowers are deep pink, with thirty petals arranged in a somewhat shaggy halo around golden stamens. The dark green shrub is vigorous and not as open as in some varieties of Damasks. It has light green foliage armed with thorns, with strong fragrance and is an occasional repeat bloomer later in the season.



This rose blooms on old wood and to encourage repeat bloom, prune after flowering.

The colors of a rose are based on which color wavelengths are absorbed and which colors are reflected back. The natural colors of roses range through a diverse palette and exist to attract pollinators. The colors originate from the petal cells where sugar-based pigments reflect light to the viewer. Conditions that concern propagation including genetics, lighting and temperature influence the color variation in roses.

Among the natural colors to choose from are pink, yellow, red or white colored roses. Some striped or splotched roses occur naturally in the wild however no true black or blue rose exist in nature. Breeders try to expand the color range of roses when they combine species of roses to see new color combination in the offspring flowers.


Some wild roses display pink petals with red splotches or stripes as seen in Rose Mundi. The Rugosa roses naturally occur in shades of white, yellow, pink and reddish purple. When a China Butterfly Rose’s petals are aging the color range would go from yellow to pink and then to crimson red.



There are rose species with extraordinary color changing qualities responding to light and temperature like the phototropic Double Delight Rose that changes from white to cherry red in response to variations of light. A Rugosa rose, Agnes is thermotropic changing its color in response to heat to yellow blossoms and changing to red apricot in cool weather.



No rose or flower is truly black as no flower absorbed all the light so nothing is reflected back. The flower would have to have pigments for red, blue and green to it to be black.
