After three failed attempts we finally made it to our favorite local organic orchard yesterday. We were there with one goal in mind, peaches. We were thrilled to see all the trees filled with peaches and we picked and picked and picked. Despite the ants biting our ankles, the huge beetles and the bees, we walked away with almost 40 pounds of peaches.
I love that the girls now look forward to going to these places. They have enough of a memory to be excited when I tell them it’s finally season for a certain fruit or veggie. We try our best to eat our produce only in season and because of that we’ve waited such a long time for peaches. So we’ll enjoy them as much as we can or until we get sick of them and move on to apple season.
My plan for preserving these peaches:
- peach lavender butter
- dried peach chunks
- frozen peach slices
- peach leathers
Any peach recipes you want to share?
