I’d never been peach picking before. In fact, I wasn’t sure if peaches grew on bushes or trees. I really had no idea. (They grow on trees for those of you who also didn’t know!) Katie and I had talked about having a peach picking date to get some fun pictures of her kids and some peaches all in one trip! We met in the morning when the light would be great and the temperature wouldn’t be full blast yet and we had so much fun. Before long, the kids were in the trees, picking peaches and tasting a few with the result of some juicy goodness running down their arms. I loved it! It was a perfect summer-time session.
The peach on the right made me think of Jasmine Star‘s orange tree and how she would practice backlighting in her yard when she was getting started :-)
Oh my goodness, Ellie. You are adorable!
Seriously, if you want some amazing peaches, Fischer’s Orchard will have them through August.
Ellie might also be the strongest kid I know. That basket had at least 10 peaches in it and she was still picking it up!
Oh morning light, how I love thee.
A picture of the five of them… because Katie is expecting :-)
Thank you guys for introducing me to peach picking!! You better believe I’ll be back before the end of the summer. I hope your cobblers and jam turned out amazingly delicious. If you need a taste tester, I’m available.
This is the recipe that Katie uses (she told me this wasn’t “hers” but that ones from friends and online are very similar)
(Make sure to try some peaches along each stage, picking to oven, to make sure they’re good)
2c chopped peaches and juice (adjust depending on your desired peach to cobbler ratio)
1c sugar (I mix regular and brown)
1/4 t salt
2 t baking powder
1 c milk
Melt 1 stick butter in the pan
Mix all the rest (except peaches) and pour into the middle
Spoon peaches and juice around
Bake @ 400 ~40 min.
She also recommends doubling or tripling and never serving without ice cream (I fully support this).
Happy Monday everyone!
