Peach Pie the Old Fashioned Two Crust Way
So last night was one of those get-home-from-work-and-have-a-drink kind of nights. It’s been a long, hard week with Matt traveling and all of the home burdens falling on me. Drink after drink and laugh after laugh, I hopped into the kitchen to make Peach Butter in the wee hours. My peaches had ripened throughout the week and became very sweet, so I didn’t need a lot of sugar. I love that I found a recipe that does not need pectin too. Pectin is found naturally in lemons. Peach Butter goes best on some hot biscuits fresh from the oven. You could also put it on ice cream or in yogurt. Enjoy!
2 lbs peaches
3 tbsp honey, raw
2 tbsp lemon juice, fresh squeezed
Mix together and simmer over medium-low heat for 70 mins or until it thickens.
This week was a busy one for me. Thus being, I am unable to submit my Saturday Bites dish until Sunday. But here’s a funny little thing. Today I took a road trip with a good friend along a nice chunk of Route 66. We stopped in Stoud, Oklahoma to dine at the Rock Cafe. Several celebrities have eaten here. It was featured on that Guy show. And a character in the film Cars is based on Dawn Welsh, the owner of Rock Cafe. After an out of this world meal I went to the gift shop to purchase a few postcards. It turns out they also sell prints of the index cards upon which some of the cafe’s recipes are written. Lo and behold! Peach cobbler! I know that this doesn’t really count as part of the challenge. However, how cool is this?
I just grilled mine.. And why not?
Happy Saturday!! Annika, Nikita , Amy and me
