peaches to pie

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.
