Tastes of summer: Strawberry Pie

August 17, 2010

Summer has so many wonderful tastes.  I love bringing them to kitchen tables where watering mouths await.

This week’s taste: Homemade Strawberry Pie!  I used the Betty Crocker Strawberry Pie recipe (without the food coloring) and the only complaint we had was that the pie was gone so fast!  Today I ordered 100 pounds of organic peaches from a great orchard that delivers to our local Farmers Market and 4o pounds of organic nectarines from Azure Standard.  Man I can’t wait to sink my teeth into those babies!  I have a list as long as my arm filled with all the things I want to make with them (fruit leather, smoothies, pies, cobblers, freeze chunks for smoothies later on. . .). What is left will get canned for the cold winter months when we can no longer remember what it was like to have sun-kissed cheeks and grass stained knees.

Have I ever mentioned that I grew up on an orchard?  We grew cherries, apricots, nectarines, peaches, plums, pears, apples, grapes, raspberries. . . it was awesome to have so many wonderfully fresh fruits each summer.  The downside is that I now have a very SPOILED fruit palate and the grocery store peaches just won’t cut it.  I look forward to sharing some of the delectable dishes that are in the cue.

What are your favorite summer recipes?
