More Fall Fruit: Peaches!

Continuing on the fruit theme, I thought I'd talk about peaches since I have about 50 or so sitting on my counter, picked fresh from the peach tree in my yard.

I'm not a big peach fan, though they are pretty good, but how many can you eat? So everyone I know has shared the bounty.

Years ago we had a huge apple tree near the garage. That produced lots of great apples and apple pies, but an accident (the tree was hit by a car) and storms finally took their toll. I always forget that on the edge of the wetland there are a couple pear trees, also.

I'm not much of a cook, but I have to admit this recipe sounds good - and easy. Maybe I'll try it.
