peach dessert

It is peach season around these parts. My Grandmother would always bottle peaches. Then while the peaches were at the peak she would make her peach dessert. It was a creamy, peachy, grahm cracker delight.  She would only make it once a year when the peaches were on. It was a real treat worth waiting for. I miss her so much. I am grateful for her patience to teach me the art of canning and preserving. I hope that I can pass that on to my own children. Below is the link to an older post I have written about learning to cook with her.

  1. I just picked up a flat of peaches from our CSA. This is the third flat I have gotten this summer. I am glad to find another recipe that will help use the peaches up.

  2. It's lovely you have such wonderful memories of your Grandmother, and so nice that she passed the art of canning on to you. Her peach dessert sounds delicious!
