Hello, I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July weekend! With cherry season behind us, the local farmer’s market is overflowing with peaches! A few friends have told me that Colorado peaches can’t compare with Georgia peaches, but it is hard to imagine anything better than these…they are so ripe, juicy and flavorful!
The first thing on my list to make was peach pie. Preserves, chutneys, and the like can wait! I modified Martha Stewart’s Peach Raspberry Pie Recipe by omitting the raspberries, and using a water wash with sugar sprinkled on top instead of the egg wash. I didn’t add any other flavors because I wanted to be able to taste the fresh peaches. The results were amazing! The peaches were still somewhat firm, not all mushy, which often happens with peach pies. I love that the pie is not overly sweet too. It really just tasted like fresh peaches and flaky, buttery crust…delicious!

And for a final bit of business…Mike and I are moving to a new place this week…I will not have as much access to the computer as I would like, so posting will be a little sporatic. Please bear with me everyone! I will be back and crafting on Monday!
