Did you know that peaches are rich in many vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin A, C, K, E, manganese, niacin, potassium, copper and fiber?
Peaches also have small amounts of magnesium, phosphorus, iron, and some B vitamins. They’re also packed with antioxidants that are beneficial plant compounds to combat oxidative damage and help protect your body against aging and disease. The fresher the fruit, the more antioxidants it contains. Sounds like the perfect sweet treat to us. Stop in and stock up. See you on the farm.
4 WHFF peaches
4 C water
¼ C butter, cold
2 refrigerated pie crusts, thawed or make your own
2 ½ C granulated sugar
1 Tbsp cornstarch
1 Tbsp apple pie spice
1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
1 Tbsp ground clove
1/3 C milk
Vanilla ice cream, optional
Preheat oven to 375. Add 4 C of water to pan and let boil. Add peaches one by one and allow them to soak for 3 – 5 minutes. Peel the peaches and cut into wedges using a pairing knife. Place the wedges in a bowl & season with sugar, spices and cornstarch. Mix well and set aside. Prepare 1 pie crust, as directed in pie plate. Using a fork, prick holes in crust to allow crust to cook through. Add peaches and cut in butter. Place additional pie crust over peaches and flute edges of pie crust together. Pierce top pie crust with a knife to allow steam to escape. Beat the egg with milk and brush egg mixture lightly on top crust. Bake in the over for 15-20 minutes. Allow to lightly cool.
