PEACHES!! Okanogan County is right next door and they produce a huge amount of the fresh fruit that Washington State is known for. That includes Cherries, Apples and of course, Peaches! Peach season started about a month ago with cling stone and progressed through free stone Red Haven to these fabulous Elegant Lady peaches that I bought yesterday. Paid ( seriously underpaid) $15 for a box weighing 24lbs! I have canned our yearly supply and these will become Jam, Cobbler and/or pie. Trust me, I am not complaining! Nothing is more wonderful than standing over the kitchen sink slurping down a ripe peach with the juices running down your chin!
So, I was standing there this morning starring at this huge box of peaches and kind of shaking my head. ” What have I gotten into this time” was running through my head. And that is how this recipe for Peach Muffins evolved. And I do mean “evolved.” But, I guess they are good as Sparky ate 3 and would have eaten more if his belt line would have allowed it 🙂
Ready? Let’s build us some Gingered Peach Pecan Muffins!
