South Carolina peaches are a wonderful thing. This post is a bit late, since I made the peach pie several weeks ago, but better late than never, right? Peaches are the best part of summer. I wish I had been able to can some like I wanted. Next year it is happening!
Sorry, I forgot to snap a photo of the pie before we cut into it. Doesn’t the inside look yummy, though? I used my new favorite fruit pie ingredient, pictured below. King Arthur Flour’s instant clearjel powder. You substitute it for the flour in a fruit pie filling (Add a little less clearjel powder than you would flour) and it works much better. The fruit flavor really shines; no muddy, flour-y taste at all. Sometime I feel like fruit pie filling looks kind of like gravy… but not with this stuff. It’s sort of like a soft-set fruit jam that forms inside the pie. MMMMMM. I want more.
I used King Arthur’s pie crust recipe, too, and it was AMAZING. Gosh, those people who work in the test kitchens at KAF really know what they are doing.

I’ve been working on this sweater for an embarrassingly long time. I seem to be experiencing a knitting lull right now. (sad… I know. I think it’s the heat.) In spite of how slowly it’s growing, I like this sweater a lot! The yarn is Knit Picks Swish Tonal in Queen Anne. The pattern is Tiny Tea Leaves from madelinetosh.
I knit a few more inches on the sleeve after taking the picture. Now I’m really almost done. I might just finish tonight.
