"Just Nan's" Scratch-My-Back Cookies

Dutch Oven Detour - “Just Nan’s” Scratch-My-Back Cookies

Peter’s Mamma recently passed along his Grandmother’s recipe books to him – pure gold!  Chock full of handwritten food spattered recipes, random notes written throughout, pages falling out, covers held together with tape – all signs of coveted and well used recipes.  Handwritten recipe books like these are a bit of a lost art – these days the interweb is our cookbook!

Last weekend we headed to the Valley just in time to catch the end of the peach season here in Nova Scotia.  It was our first visit to the Dempsey’sCorner Orchards in Aylesford – a U-Pick paradise.  In addition to the perfectly ripe peaches – you can pick your own pears, plums, corn, grapes, pumpkins…and even sunflowers!  We left with a bounty of beautiful tree-ripe peaches (lots of peach preserves in our future!) and a few new friends, including these adorable little fellas.
