Trees of Transition

Planting seeds of hope throughout our world through sharing photography and thoughts on teaching, cooking, and life transitions.

Peach Pie



Peach Pie

Today I used the last jar of peaches my parents canned from their farm that they moved off three years ago. The peaches were four years old, but they had stayed preserved fine in sugar syrup, so I made them into a peach pie to share with family tonight.
I remember ordering those peach trees over twenty years ago–they started just as twigs. Then they started bearing fuzzy peaches, and I was in heaven!

Using the last peaches from the farm feels a little sad, but I’m mostly thankful.

Peach Pie

2 cups canned peaches
1 cup. peach syrup (leftover from the canned peaches)
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour or arrowroot powder
Two pie crust

Whisk together the a syrup, sugar and flour in a medium sauce pan. Heat on medium flame until it thickens and comes to a boil. Add the peaches, and now your filling is ready.

Place one pie crust in a 9-inch pie pan, and then pour in the filling. Place the second pie crust on top, crimp the edge, place on a foil-covered cookie sheet in case the pie filling overflows, and bake. Bake at 425 degrees for 35-40 minutes until golden brown.

Serves 6-8 depending on how you cut it! Enjoy.

Hello Friends, A curious, kind, practical, and energetic writer, wife, mother, and teacher is one way to describe me. I enjoy thinking about transitions--in schools, churches, families, relationships, and even countries. I'm passionate about learning, and I love working with people. Stop by often to see which kind of transition I'm thinking about, and I would appreciate hearing your thoughts. Peace! ~Mary Hope

  1. I’ve never used/seen tinned fruit like that – what a wonderful thing to have in your cupboard! Sounds delicious πŸ™‚


    • I’m glad I could introduce it to you! Those peaches are “canned”–which means that my parents heated the fruit, jar, and lid (it had a ring around it that they had taken off after it sealed) and put it through a hot water bath where it sealed that lid on top. It’s fun to do! Thanks for stopping by. πŸ™‚

  2. How lovely to use peaches for your pie that had a history and emotions behind them! Much better than any store-bought fruit!
    Your results look heavenly!
    And oh, by the way, I wasn’t able to get to the oven this weekend to make your oatmeal cookies because it was too darn hot to turn it on! But I’ll get around to making them soon!
    Much love!
