    Just Peach!

    Picked up 50 lbs (1 bushel) good late season freestone peaches from the orchard in SC. Put up about half frozen, the rest peach preserves. Whew!Click image for larger version.

    Jealous! Peaches up here in MN are rock hard and tasteless and they rot before they ripen. I remember mom getting crates of peaches we would skin then make into jam or pie filling.

    Got 9 pts preserves and 3 qts for the freezer out of one box (plus a little for the fridge) Peach ice cream is a fave at my house, pie or cobbler too. The next box is for the freezer.

    I miss my peach trees. I had 250 of them and oak root rot killed them all. It is in the soil and can't be easily killed. There is nothing like a peach that is fully ripe on the tree. Most of the ones in the store have been picked too soon and will not fully ripen. When judging ripeness, look at the bottom of the peach, the top color is not a good indicator. If you plant peaches, be sure to get varieties with the chill hour requirement matching your area. That and thin your peaches to at least 10 inches apart or you will have peaches the size of a golf ball with most of it being the seed.
    When I would pick and grabbed a fully ripe peach, I had two choices:
    1. Throw it on the ground 2. Eat it.
    After eating about 5 or 6 all the ripe ones went on the ground.
    I planted a Florida King last year ( I can get about 8 years out of a Florida King before It dies from Oak root rot, But the deer (AKA rats with antlers) killed it by scraping the velvet off on the young tree.

    I still miss the Clinton Louisiana peaches ... they had enough growers to have a nice Peach Festival every year ... that's where we got fresh tree ripened peaches .... then the trees all started dying ...
    I didn't know it was called Oak Root Rot ... but it wiped out every tree .
    I hope the trees in Ruston survive ... it's the only place in Louisiana I know to get good peaches fit for eating .
    Looked at Peaches in grocery store ... they look OK but hard and no smell !
    I won't buy any that are rock hard and don't have a lot of good peachy smell to them .

    growing up we had a hale haven peach tree that yielded so much fruit we couldn't give it away. I ate so many as a kid to this day I'd rather eat pears.

    here's my apple cobbler recipe. The most important part being the crust. I can remember the last scout camp out I went to where this wasn't made in a dutch oven.



    8 tart apples, peeled & sliced
    3 tbsp butter
    2/3 sugar
    2 tsp cinnamon

    Topping:
    2 c sifted flour
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 c shortening
    2/3 c warm milk
    2 tbsp sugar
    4 tsp baking powder
    2 beaten eggs

    Mix apples, 2/3 c sugar & cinnamon. Arrange in a 9-inch pie plate, dot with butter.
    Combine flour, 1 tbsp sugar, salt, & baking powder. Cut in shortening. Add eggs &
    warm milk. Mix. Spoon over apples and spead. Bake at 400 for 1 hour. Serve
    upside down in bowls with sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and either heavy cream or vanilla ice cream

    The best way to eat a peach is straight from the tree fuzz and all.

    Years ago, as a food development chemist, I was requested to develop a peach extract. I went to one of our best flavor suppliers and requested samples. The description from me was that I wanted a fresh peach flavor that was so fresh that you could taste the fuzz on it. The vendor submitted a sample and absolutely nailed it. Best peach extract/flavor that didn't come from the tree ever!

    I have to ask, why does a guy who lives in GA buy peaches in SC ? Is GA the Peach State or not ?

    Ga used to be king but no longer. SC has developed a good industry. BTW, those hard grocery store peaches this time of year need 3-4 days on your kitchen counter to soften and ripen up. Buy several and give them a try. Those late season peaches are often the best.
