Now that the Indian Blood Peaches are starting to ripen the first picking goes to making a fresh peach pie. These peaches have such a unique flavor that no commercial peach or peach pie can compare. We have waited for this first pie all year. So O Wise One smoked one of our homegrown chickens. And I fried up some green tomatoes and made a loaf of homemade bread and sliced some cucumbers and plum tomatoes. And we feasted getting such a kick that our entire meal was homegrown with the exception of the bread flour. A true Hickery Holler meal : )
2 pie crusts
7 cups of peeled and sliced peaches1 cup sugar
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp lemon juice
pinch of nutmeg
Peel and slice peaches
notice the red streaking running through the peach flesh of these Indian Blood Peaches
Combine sliced peaches, sugar, flour, cinnamon and lemon juice. Stir well and pour into pie shell
Dot with butter and put top crust on.
I brush top crust with a egg and milk wash then sprinkle a pinch of nutmeg on top .
Bake at 400 for 1 hour.
Try not to eat too much !!!
