Last week, my 8-year-old son walked into the house carrying a large box, exclaiming, “Mom, I found this at the front door!” Seeing the surprise and glee that immediately swept over me, he smiled and tried to pass the heavy box to me in a cute, cumbersome, 3rd-grader type of way and asked, “What is it?”
“Fruit!” I replied, spying the unmistakable branding on the box that makes me feel right at home: Family Tree Farms. Suddenly, I am transported back to the Kings River in Central California – to jet skis and barbecues, to families and friends gathered, and fruit trees exploding with the absolute most delectable fruit imaginable.
This box of fruit from my farmer friends nearly brought me to tears. Those happy, nostalgic, feeling-completely-loved-and-not-forgotten-after-moving-far-far-away-to-Alaska sorts of tears. Inside the box was two flats of a brand new, fragrant, sweet variety of yellow saturn peaches called “Peach Pie” – just for me to try and play around with in my kitchen.
And play I did!
This is a summer version of my extremely popular Caramel Apple Pull-Apart Bread. The original recipe was the 3rd most popular recipe on Alaska from Scratch in 2012. I truly hope you love this peach version as much, if not more! For step-by-step photos on assembling this bread, click here.
Big thanks to Family Tree Farms for the beautiful peaches! Stay tuned for another recipe featuring their peaches on Friday. Check out this awesome video highlighting the Peach Pie variety (plus a quick, fun recipe) from Family Tree Farms.
