Movin’ to the country…
What does it say about a girl if she bought almost 10-quarts of fresh peaches 3-days ago; her husband doesn’t eat them (yes, I said that); her children eat a minimal amount, and she’ll have to go back for a refill next week in order to have enough to make a peach cobbler? In all fairness, I did give a couple of quarts away…but, let’s just say I’ve been eatin’ me a whoooole lot of peaches. Only these peaches didn’t come from a can (more credit to The Presidents of the United States of America), they came from
Livesay Orchards in Porter, Oklahoma.
Porter has long been considered Oklahoma’s Official Peach Capital, Livesay Orchards the center of it. Livesay harvests several varieties of those sticky, juicy, fuzzy chunks of sweetness Mid-June through October (season allowing). Imagine, if you will, a little drive through the Oklahoma countryside to indulge in a delicious snag – the jewel of the summer and a flavorful relief from aridity. Livesay also sells a variety of seasonable fruits and locally grown vegetables, local honey and fresh peach products.
Unfortunately, there are just enough peaches in my stash to eat tomorrow so I’ll have to mooch some recipes off a few of my blogger buddies to share with you. I intend to try these myself…not long after I take another little drive.
