GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. — North Carolina peaches are ripe and ready to enjoy all summer long. We stopped by the Piedmont Triad Farmer’s Market with GTCC Culinary Instructor Al Romano for this Recipe Wednesday. He showed us some easy and delicious dishes featuring peaches. Enjoy!
4 medium size peaches
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 Tbsp Brown Sugar

2-3 oz water
½ tsp salt
1 cup powder sugar

To remove skins: Blanch peaches in a pot of boiling water for 15-20 seconds and then place in ice water bath – Skins should come off easily by rubbing the peaches
Cut in sections from the pit and place in saucepan with other ingredients.
Heat filling until thickened
Set aside and let cool
In a bowl add flour then add butter/shortening in small pieces – squeeze together with your hands to incorporate the fat and flour.
