You wouldn’t think that peach picking in the mid-west would be something we’d get into but… you’d be wrong. Although it was fun, as we do pick-your-own for just about every season we can here. Peach picking in the mid-west was exactly as you’d expect: not all that great. Many peaches were not good. I expect it is difficult to grow them up here, but we had a blast all the same.

We road tripped it across the boarder into Wisconsin, as we are want to do, and hit up an apple picking hot spot, Apple Holler, and on an over cast Sunday we had the run of the place.  The little one was able to take a train ride, a horse ride, and got his face painted. It was an amazing day.

Now, I make Apple Butter every year. It is one of the staples of my homemade kitchen arsenal. So when I came across several recipes for Peach Butter I had to try it. And it did NOT disappoint. It is very much like Apple Butter because it has the same spice profile but it has a different sweetness than you get from delicious ripe peaches.

I have never peeled peaches before and I have read several times about boiling them then putting them in an ice bath and then the peels would slip off. I didn’t think it could possibly be that easy but let me tell you if I didn’t do it with my own two hands I would have never believed it. It was incredible. If you haven’t tried this method of peeling peaches you should!
