Happy Monday! My week is off to a peachy start. Literally. My peach tree had a great crop this year and every peach seemed to get ripe at once so I had a lot of picking to do!
With this many peaches, I knew I'd have to do some freezing if I wanted to use them before they went bad. That meant a day of peeling skin and cutting the fruit. My hands were tired by the end but I have a few ziplock bags of fruit ready for whatever I want to make.
Plus, I have some disks of peach pulp that I can drop into an iced tea pitcher.
And my dad even joined the party and made this great jam.
After that, I asked for ideas on what to make. Baked good seemed to be the number one recommendation but after all the peach peeling and chopping, I was too tired to deal with pie crust so I went for this strudel using puff pastry, which I had in my freezer. I cut down the sugar quite a bit so that it could be eaten with ice cream and not be too sweet. It turned out great!
Next up - my apple tree is ready for picking!
Have a peachy week.
