Peaches


I painted my first peaches ever by looking at some pics online. But when peaches come out this year I hope to be able to go pick some and get some pictures to paint.

We have had no frost this year and lots of rain and I am sure the freestone peaches that grow in the Texas hill country are going to produce a banner crop. I love peaches. Before we moved here we would try to come in August or the beginning of September to enjoy the best of the peach crop. The peaches they begin advertising earlier than that are cling peaches. The difference is… The pit clings and the flesh of the peach is not as juicy and delectable. The freestone peach on the other hand is juicy and the peach pit (stone) basically falls out.

My family buys bushels to slice and freeze to make peach cobblers all year. Last year I tried a new recipe and made a peach cake with a cinnamon swirl Krusteaz baking mix. I mix in extra flour because those delicious peaches are so juicy.

I’d love to hear what you have to say.
