This is a quick update to my previous blog post Mountain Pies, and if you don’t know how to make a mountain pie just click the link. I received a comment from my good friend Susan Deppner on Mountain Pies.
Comment from Susan: “How fun! I'm imagining peach slices, butter, and brown sugar inside those two slices of bread. I'd probably burn my tongue, but I'd still be a happy camper when my mountain pie cooled down.”
Well the rain stopped early Friday night so we had our usual camp fire. I asked my daughter to pick up a can of peaches, I already had the brown sugar and butter I just had to try this one. Susan was absolutely right, this mountain pie was a sure delight and a must try.
Peaches came to North America from Spain, and the largest producers in the United States are Georgia, South Carolina, and California. I just thought I’d give you a little history lesson on peaches, I really didn’t know this, I had to look it up.
Here is Susan’s Idea:
2 slices of bread buttered on one side
2 slices of peaches (I used peaches in a can, but I think fresh peaches would be better)
3 teaspoons of brown sugar
A little dab of butter.
Now close up the pie iron and into the fire it goes, cooking it for about 5 minutes turning it frequently.
For more of Susan’s recipes visit her blog here: Recipes for Real People, there you will find some amazing ideas for everyday family cooking.
One more update about pie irons, they work really great over a charcoal grill. So you don’t need a camp fire.
As always thanks for stopping by and thank you Susan for the idea. I hope you enjoy.
