Peach Pie

August 23, 2017

Over the past few years, I have developed a strong affection for peach pie. Traditionally, it’s prepared as a pretty indulgent dessert but I wanted to find a way to make it healthy, dairy free and still taste like your grandma’s pie.

So I took out a lot of the added sugar and let the peaches do all the talkin’.

I learned all about peaches last year when I became friends with the owners of the Nashville-based and widely loved company, The Peach Truck. It takes a whole lot of love and care to grow the right peach and the Georgia-grown peaches brought to Nashville by The Peach Truck are, by far, the best peaches I’ve ever tasted. The variety changes each week during the summer and after tasting most of them, I have become fond of the peaches that come in early July. They aren’t too big but still are very juicy and packed with flavor.

Knowing what I do now about peaches, I really appreciate each and every peach I eat. Summer is a sweet, sweet time and peaches make it even sweeter. Watching summer dwindle down is not my favorite but if we have to do it, we might as well savor it while it’s here and celebrate National Peach Pie Day!
