The peach crop here in Middle Georgia is excellent this year! One of my favorite things I enjoy is fresh Georgia Peach Pie!! I make it myself with a little help from some of my bro’s from the North Georgia (Blue Ridge) Mountains. Figured I’d share my recipe with all y’all (NOTE: “Y’all” is singular down here in the south,… “All Y’all” is plural). With exactly 10 days before I turn 21 again for about the 48th time, now is the time to get this pie made!
Gotta start with a batch of last falls North Georgia Mountain Moonshine. Since Connie always manages to hijack a few Mason Jars from one of our neighbors every Christmas, by July when the peaches are good and ripe, that moonshine has had a good few months of natural “Aging”…
The next ingredient is a couple fresh tree ripened Middle Georgia Peaches. Don’t want 'em “mushy”, and don’t want 'em hard… Gotta be like Goldilocks here and choose 'em “Just Right”! Peal the skin off; cut 'em in half; remove the pit; cut in half again; put into pint jar.
Carefully fill (to the rim) with Moonshine and seal tightly with a lid.
Let set for a few days - mine’s never made it past 10 since I like to monitor the pies progress on a somewhat daily basis, so by the time the 10 day period has been reached, it’s pretty much all gone - but then again, at that point, so am I…
Got a really good recipe for “Leprechaun Stew” also!!
Keep on Thumpin’!
