the freshest peach pie...

Excuse the less than stellar photograph. I had to get this in the frig so it would be ready for dinner. This is WB's favorite summer pie. He deserves it a lot more than I ever get around to making it.

4 cups fresh peaches(should be ripe, juicy and yummy), peeled and sliced
3/4 cup sugar
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1 1/4 cups orange juice (apple juice may be substituted but orange is best)
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup blueberries
1 pie crust (best with homemade crust or Pillsbury refrigerated pie crusts)

In a saucepan, combine sugar, gelatin and orange juice. Heat and stir until gelatin is dissolved. Stir in lemon juice and butter. Fold in peaches and then blueberries. Turn mixture into pastry shell. Chill until firm. (hint: I prefer to put the fruit in with a slotted spoon and then pour remaining liquid on top. Otherwise sometimes it spills over.)

It is so good and easy too! Let me know if you try it.

Hey, we BOTH made pies today! I just served 4 of them to some FL friends who stopped by for lunch on their way to Albany to see their grandkids.

Sorry to hear you're under the weather today. I'm NEVER not hungry! LOL Hope it passes quickly.

BTW, in your profile you have listed Jain's two blogs as ones you follow...Food With Style & Once in a Blue Moon. She has discontinued both & is now just doing Food For Thought. Just a heads up, that's all.

*where ARE my manners* Excuse me for not saying "thank you" for that delicious looking pie recipe. My Dad's favorite pie was peach & DH is the same way. I will be trying it soon.

I didn't know you had a blog! How is it that I didn't know this? Anyway, it was the find of the day. When I finally get home this afternoon, I'll have a good look around. It's beautiful, of course!
