Our vine peaches (the size of plums) ripen soon after the pears. Brady planted our two trees five or six years ago and even though they are small, they bear a lot of fruit.
|Searching for the peaches that fall among the wild strawberries reminds me of hunting for Easter eggs.
I drop the peaches in boiling water for 30 seconds to remove the skin easily.Then they are ready to use in pie or cobbler, or to be frozen or canned for later.
I cut up some of the peaches bite-size to freeze for smoothies, a great after school snack or light desert. Caution! These will give you a brain freeze!
