Peaches Galore!

The last few days were filled with canning peaches.  I was able to get 20 jars from a bushel of them, (good to know for next time) and I’m hoping to be able to pick up more in the next week or so.  These are one of Grady’s favorite fruits, so I’d like to put up quite a bit.  We enjoy them straight out of the jar, but he likes them the best in:

Peach Skillet Cake

  1. Melt 1/4 C. butter in a 9 inch skillet.  Add 3/4 C. brown sugar and 1 C. nuts.  Arrange 1 C. sliced peaches on top.
  2. Beat 2 eggs, gradually adding 1/4 t. salt and 1 C. sugar.  Add 1/2 C. milk, 1 T. butter, 1 t. vanilla and mix.  Blend in 1 C. flour and 1 t. baking powder.
  3. Pour batter over fruit and bake at 350 degrees F. for 30 to 40 minutes.  Serve with whipped cream if desired.


Do you have a favorite fruit/summer dessert?

  1. This looks very similar to my recipe for peach upside down cake – I never thought of doing it in a skillet, though, what a great idea. I can see why it’s Grady’s favourite! Your canned peaches look wonderful.

      Thank you. The original recipe actually says to serve upside down, but I was never able to get it out of the pan in one piece that way…so I just serve in the skillet. 🙂

    Erin, this sounds delicious. Thank you! Are your peaches a local source you could share with us? We can’t seem to find any locally that are not sprayed?

      I bought them from Chiles Orchard in Crozet. Unfortunately I think they spray the fruit 🙁 There is another orchard, (Henley’s) near Crozet that has low-spray fruit. I haven’t been able to find a local source that doesn’t spray.

  3. We put up 3 bushels a few weeks back and have eaten a jar nearly every day since then. Today I bought two more bushels. Hope that’s enough!

    I am aso envious. Peaches are not a Florida Fruit normally so we have no local suppliers other than ourselves and our trees did not produce this year due the wonky winter.

    This sounds so delicious. I know it will be a big hit around here. Kids love peaches 🙂

  6. Yum! Peaches are always a hit!
