Peaches For Me


Last week I took a bit of a break from sewing and focused on the bushels of peaches harvested from my tree.  It is a scraggly half living tree that sits right next to our front door.  It apparently produces every other year, because last year when we bought the house the tree was barren.  This year the tree was fruitful....very fruitful.


We ended up giving away peaches to just about anybody that would take them.  I spent days drying peaches,  freezing peaches, making peach lemonade, and of course some peach freezer jam. I also took a bit of time to make a peach pie, and some delicious peach cobbler.  So I apologize for the lack of sewing related post, but I was busy making things (just not out of fabric).

You can find the peach pie recipe here.  Thanks Hanna for the recommendation.  If you are looking for a delicious blog to follow, you should definitely check out Bouffe e Bambini.

I've got an adorable halloween costume to show you....as soon as I can get a few decent shots.  Clark has grown a bit tired of photo shoots lately.

I'll be linking here.

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit and read.

GF Note:  The pie was made gluten free.  I substituted the flour for the filling with some corn starch.  I also used a gluten free pie crust mix from Gluten Free Pantry.  I haven't had very good luck rolling out their crusts, but they have a nice flavor and texture.  I simply pat the crust in the pan and drop flattened pieces on top.  It looks good when it is all served up.

Yum! I guess a half-alive tree produces fruit half of the time...? Now I really want some peach lemonade... and I'm feeling bad about the big box of apples that's been sitting on my table waiting to be applesauced for a week now... Way to go, processing all those peaches!
