Summer Peach Pie All Winter Long

By Paula Deen

If I had to share just one recipe with y’all this month, it’s my Frozen Peach Pie Filling. This simple recipe is my trick for having summer peach pie all winter long. With one recipe, you can put 4 pies in your freezer! To make it even better, all you have to do is pull one out of the freezer, drop it in a premade pie shell, sprinkle with a little of your favorite spice and add BUTTER!

Frozen Peach Pie Filling
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons quick cooking tapioca
3 1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoon Fruit Fresh, fruit preservative
9 lb fresh peaches

On Pie Baking Day:
1 9-inch pie dough, for double crust pie
1/2 stick of butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon or nutmeg

To peel the peaches, first bring a pot of water to a boil. Using a paring knife, score the peaches with an X into the skins only. Gently drop the peaches in the boiling water for approximately 30 seconds to 1 minute. Using a slotted spoon, remove the peaches and place them in iced water for a minute. The skins should slip off easily. If not, place back into the boiling water for another 30 seconds.

Slice the peaches and put them in a bowl. Sprinkle fresh fruit and sugar, and stir into peaches. Stir in remaining ingredients and mix well.

Line 4 pie pans with heavy foil or freezer paper, placing a piece of plastic wrap over foil. Put 4 to 5 cups filling each pan. Loosely fold wrapping around pie and freeze until firm.  When filling is frozen solid, remove from pans and wrap tightly. Return to freezer until ready to use.

On pie baking day, simply place frozen pie filling in pie shell, add half a stick of butter and sprinkle with cinnamon or nutmeg. Top pie with an additional pastry crust, seal well, and bake for 50 to 60 minutes at 350º F.

Servings: 6 to 8 servings
Prep Time: 45 min
Cook Time: 1 hour
Difficulty: Moderate

I Just Love Peach Pie Or Anything Esle You Can Think Of To Make Out Of Peach's My Mom Use To Make Us Peach Pie All The Time. When We Were Kids, And What Was Really Good Since We Lived In The Some House With My Grandpa. He Grow Peach Tree's On His Property. We Had Peach Tree's Outside Our Front Door Even Better. So We Had Whole Made Peach Pie. Everytime My Mom Wanted To Bake. That's Why I Love It So Much. Love Cindy

Take peaches right off the tree, don't wash them, put them in the freezer on a tray, then bag them in freezer bags..when you want a peach to eat or to make a pie, take out what you need, put them in the microwave for one minute depending on the wattage of your microwave, the skins slid off and cut them up..tastes like fresh peaches all winter long..
