I took a break from grapes yesterday and tackled some of those peaches that have been patiently waiting for me.
Peach pie filling
3 lbs peaches (peeled, cored and sliced)
2 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp lemon zest
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp crystallized ginger
Mix together and stuff into 1 quart and 1 pint jars. you an freeze or process in a hot water bath for 20 minutes.
you will need tapioca for a thickening agent when you go to use the filling. 3-4 tablespoons. (if you want your pie to have a lattice top, mix tapioca with only 2/3 of the filling, place the 1/3 without on top of the 2/3 with. This will prevent the tapioca from getting hard)
If you want to use this filling for something other then pie. Make up some buttermilk biscuits for breakfast. Heat peaches in a sauce pan, adding 1 cup heavy whipping cream to every pint of mix. Pour over hot biscuits, and watch as everyone devours it and begs you for your share.
Tomorrow is my turn to post at Woman not dabbling, I have been going over and over what recipe I should post. Here's where you can help. We all seem to be knee deep in some sort of produce, what one do you need a recipe for. I will use the most commented produce as my subject, and post a not so normal recipe for it tomorrow.
