Peach Pie & How to Peel Peaches

peach-pie.jpg
 According to my husband this was the best peach pie, ever.

I made changes in the recipe because the peaches were so juicy. I also wanted my top crust to stay crispy. So, I mixed 2 tablespoons of flour with 1/4 cup of sugar. I put the sugar/flour mixture over the filling before dotting with butter and adding the top crust. (Don’t worry the top mixture of sugar and flour will cook into the pie. And, it will keep your top crust from becoming soggy.)

PEACH PIE FILLING:

 5 to 6 cups of peaches

1/2 to 2/3 cup white or brown sugar (I used 2/3 cup of white)

1/8 tsp. salt

1 1/2 tsp. cornstarch

1/4 tsp. cinnamon

1/8 tsp. nutmeg

1 tablespoon lemon juice

Dot with 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter

DIRECTIONS: Bake the pie in a preheated 450 degree oven for 10 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350 degrees and bake 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown. The middle should be bubbling.

dsc00223.jpg How to peel peaches: dip the fruit in boiling water for 30 to 60 seconds. Remove from the water using a slotted spoon and put into a large bowl or pot of cold water and ice. The skins will easily slide off.

Thanks for your help, Healingmagichands!

    Oh my, that looks spectacular.

    Peaches are one of the few fruits I am not allergic to.

    I love peaches! Can I have that last piece? Oh, and your instructions for peeling peaches are exactly right. The only thing I would add is, this works a LOT better if the peaches are completely ripe. If they are too green the skins don’t slip off nearly as well.

    Ok…the last piece is for you.

    Thanks for your input on peeling the peaches. Fortunately mine were ripe enough and I had no problem, but I will add your information so no one will have any problems.

    Thanks again.
