Peaches , Peaches, Peaches!

Is There Anything That Says “Summer” More Than Peaches?

When I was a kid in eastern Washington, summer was peach juice dripping off my elbows.  I think our mother just hosed us off at the end of the day!  We all could eat about a dozen peaches in one sitting.  So when peaches show up at the store, I am like a kid in a candy store.  I fill my bags with them!

Delicious and Nutritious!

It’s hard to believe that you might need more reasons than the wonderful taste to eat peaches, but here are some anyway.  Low in calories–about 60 for a medium fruit–peaches are a great source of potassium, vitamin A, C, and also anti-oxidants.  I’m sure you’re convinced!

Here’s a Great Peach Pie Recipe!

This is a recipe from another of my amazing sisters–my girls have nicknamed this sister “Aunt Fabulous.”  It’s a perfect summer pie–just one crust and a custard filling.  It perfectly highlights the natural sweetness of the peaches, and doesn’t overwhelm them with extra crust or thick syrup.  And bonus–the no-fail Pie Crust recipe that has been in our family for 4 generations.  I never use any other.

Give it a Try!

You’ll need:

For Grandma Mildred’s No-fail Pie Crust:

Makes two 9″ crusts–enough for two pies.  I use this recipe for all of my pies and quiches!
  • 2 1/4 cups organic unbleached white flour
  • 3/4-1 cup Spectrum Organic All-Vegetable Shortening (on a very dry day you’ll need to use more shortening.)
  • 1/4 cup water, plus 1 TBSP organic white vinegar
  • 1 organic egg, beaten
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

Measure the flour into a medium mixing bowl, add the shortening and then use a pastry cutter or two knives to cut the shortening into the flour until it forms course crumbs.

Mix the water, vinegar, egg and salt together, then add to the flour mixture.  Stir to combine, but don’t over mix.

Turn out onto a floured surface, and then form into two balls.  Roll into rounds, and then place in the pie pan(s), crimping the edges.  Set aside.

Aunt Fabulous’s Indescribable Peach Pie

You’ll Need:

  • 8 organic peaches, peeled, pitted, and sliced
  • 2 organic eggs
  • 1 1/3 to 2 cups organic, unbleached sugar (depends on how sweet the peaches are, and how sweet you like your pie!  I used 1 1/3 cups in my recipe and it was perfect.)
  • 1/4 cup organic unbleached flour
  • 2/3 cup organic melted butter

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Mix the eggs, sugar, flour, and butter with a beater until thick.

Place the peach slices in the unbaked pie shell, and then pour the egg/flour mixture over the peaches.  You’ll need to spread it all the way to the edge of the pie shell, covering the peaches.

Place the pie into the oven and bake for 15 minutes.  (You may want to put the pie pan on a baking sheet to catch any drip-overs.  With the pie this full I didn’t have any dripping, but sometimes it does!)

After 15 minutes, reduce the heat to 325 degrees, and bake for an additional 60 minutes.  Check the pie.  It should be golden brown.  Shake the pan a little.  It should not be wet or jiggly, but gently firm.  If it’s still jiggly, bake an additional 10 minutes.

The filling will firm up as the pie cools.  You can serve this pie still warm or cold.

Hello Summer!
 

In case you missed it, let me be the first to warmly welcome you to SUMMER 2012! 

veagn+peach+cobbler

Frankly I don’t know how you could miss this summer sun. I can’t really see it right now from inside my office but I can feel it reaching down with those wiggly heat wave arms to try to coax me outside. 

Living in Southern California, I almost feel guilty if my weekends aren’t spent laying on the sand or playing in the waves. Summer also marks the epic return of stone fruits! Peaches, nectarines, apricots, plums! 
 

My sweet, sweet babies! Oh how I’ve missed you!
