Full Answer

To make peach cobbler, combine a can of peaches, blueberries, baking mix, sugar and a sprinkle of cinnamon in the Dutch oven. Prepare the cobbler topping by mixing biscuit mix, sugar, butter and milk, and place droplets of the topping sporadically over the top of the peach mixture. Cook in the oven for 45 minutes.

For spiced pumpkin butter, combine pumpkin puree, maple syrup, apple juice, lemon juice, ground ginger, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg and salt in the Dutch oven, and bring the mixture to a boil. Cook the mixture uncovered for 25 minutes on medium heat, stirring frequently. Allow the mixture to cool, and ladle or pour the mixture into jars or freezer containers. Be sure to leave about a half an inch head space in the containers. Store the butter in the refrigerator for up to one week, or put it in the freezer for a longer lasting product. Add chopped hazelnuts to the final product for flavor.
