Drove by pick your own peach farm and decided to stop. Most of the local peach crop was destroyed by a late frost. So I didn’t expect much.
The trees were loaded.
The peaches were so ripe that when the breeze blew you could hear peaches hitting the ground.
I picked 1/2 bushel in about 15 minutes.
I love the trusting attitude. Pick your own, leave money in the door.
Then, what do you do with piles of peaches? I let the kids eat as many as they wanted.
But still had a lot. So I made several batches of canned peach pie filling.
The kids loved apple pie filing last year. It made for very quick pot luck dishes. I usually just heated it with a crumble topping. Instant apple crisp. The kids liked it best on pancakes!
I also wanted to try a recipe I found on pintrest.com Peach pepper BBQ sauce.
I used a hotter pepper then the recipe called for. It turned out very interesting, but not a BBQ sauce. Tastes more like a sweet Asian chili sauce. Good on chicken.
Savor the summer fruits, they leave too quickly!
