Peaches. Just the sight of one takes me back. A peach holds the sight, sound, and smell of the end of summer. Guess what I've been doing this week? Eating peaches, canning peaches, drying peaches -- right off the tree in our back yard. Hundreds of them!
Here is my favorite fresh peach recipe (from my mother):
Fresh Peach Pie
Mash 3 large peaches and add 3/4 cup sugar, 3 Tablespoons corn starch, and 1/2 cup water. Cook 5 minutes until mixture thickens. Add 1/4 tsp. almond flavoring and 2 tablespoons butter. Let cool. Slice fresh peaches into a cooked pie shell. Pour thickened sauce over and chill until set. Top with whipped cream.
And I just HAVE to include this one! It's the ONLY recipe Randy uses when it's his turn to make a treat for Family Home Evening! This one uses home bottled peaches.
Randy's Peach Cobbler:
Melt 1/2 cube butter in a baking pan.
1 cup bisquick baking mix
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
Dribble mixture over melted butter. Arrange sliced canned peaches over mixture. Pour a little fruit juice over all. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown.
