Continuing with my all peach revue this week, a few nights ago I made a peach custard pie. Now most people think of peach pie as something hot and bubbly and syrupy, not cold, sweet, and custardy. I haven’t seen fruit custard pies very often outside of southern Illinois, but they are very popular in my family, and I believe have ties to German fruit tarts with custard. At any rate, this is the easiest fruit custard pie recipe you’ll ever meet.
And I hope you like peach jammin’ too. It’s peach season here, and over the weekend we visited a local farm to buy a half bushel of Redhaven peaches. We’ve been eating a lot of them with vanilla ice cream for dessert, but I managed so spare a few to make a beautiful batch of peach jam!
Well summer is practically over and I’ve hardly spent any time posting about it! I am completely backlogged in all my yet-to-materialize posts on gardening, canning, cooking, and the many other projects that have kept me too busy to write!
Oh and we went to Hawaii.
