A friend told us he had taken his family peach picking the week before and just how delicious the peaches were. I love peaches and fresh you can pick them? We had to go which we did this past weekend. It was about an hours drive through parts of Ohio we’ve never explored (more about that later such as my slight run in with someone who wanted to know what I was doing on this middle of farmland gravel road) to get to Utica, Ohio and the Legend Hills Orchard.
You could pick your own or opt to stay at the farm stand and buy them already picked along with fruit ciders, cherry juice, Amish butter and other veggies. We chose to pick our own and DH’s height came in handy for picking fruit I couldn’t reach. The ready for picking peaches were these sweet and juicy Red Havens; one bite and juice dribbled down your chin. Their apples weren’t ready yet so this means we have to go back. Rough isn’t it?
So now we have two pecks (and yes I started to sing that song) of peaches and I need to do something with them besides just grabbing one and eating. I made peach salsa last night and hope to make this peach oatmeal loaf today from a recipe I found online. If you have any good peach recipes please share your link in the comments 🙂
They look like good peaches.
They really are and I need to get freezing, jamming and baking.
Jam session. Yeah!
Oh a Peach Cobbler would be perfect to make.
Made peach jam instead…yum!
We missed the picking this time…oh how I love a juicy peach. Happy picking!
Up to my knees in peaches and loving it.
