I absolutely love this time of year…Every thing is Just Peachy…the weather is starting to cool down, the leaves are turning and my peach tree is ready to be picked! Continue reading
Today I have an EASY PEACH TREAT. (Say that fast 3 times!)
These little fruit cups are to die for! They are such a treat and they are wonderful because you make up a big batch and put them in the freezer and they are ready to go whenever you need one! They are my “go to” for breakfast, but they are good at noon or at night too! They are so refreshing, especially on a hot summer day! I always eat mine partially frozen and it is a frosty fruit delight!
It has frozen peaches, canned mandarin oranges, crushed pineapple, bananas, fruit juice concentrate and lemon juice. Her recipe calls for fruit cocktail, but I don’t like that, so I just add a few more peaches! When I started making this recipe I had frozen peaches from my garden, but they are long gone and now I have to buy the peaches. But I will be freezing a lot more peaches this year just for this recipe!
I went out last Sat. night and noticed that my peaches were ready to pick! The reason I knew they were ready was because the birds had started eating them! I was bound and determined not to let the birds win, so my husband and I went out and picked them all. This tree is only 3 years old and it was loaded this year. I should have thinned them out a little more because they were not really big, but that is ok, because they have a fantastic flavor!I bottled peaches on Monday and I love to see all the bottles lined up on my cupboard before I put them away in the pantry. I think that they look so pretty.Then I had to make this yummy fresh peach dessert.
