The other day my daughter and I stopped and at Lyman Orchards pick-your-own orchard and gathered some fresh, ripe peaches and decided to try my hand at making a Peach Raspberry Pie recipe.
Now that my daughter and her family have moved from the burbs out to Petticoat Junction, I also pass many a local farm stand along the way to visit them.
I like fresh berries when they’re in season and also make a mean cobbler. I thought the addition of the big red berries would add some color to the fruit filling. Also, I added some mace in addition to the cinnamon and nutmeg spices.
Did you know that Connecticut is known as the “Nutmeg” state?
Unofficially (but popularly) Connecticut is also known as “The Nutmeg State”.
The nutmeg connection to Connecticut may come from its sailors returning from voyages with nutmeg (which in the 18th and 19th centuries was a very valuable spice in New England). It is also said to come from Connecticut Yankee peddlers who would sell small carved nobs of wood shaped to look like nutmeg to the local Native Americans and other unsuspecting customers.
Everyone’s heard of Georgia Peaches, but this is my adaptation of a traditional Connecticut recipe. Treat your family or dinner guests to this summer fruit recipe idea for casual entertaining and serve it as a fresh fruit dessert and top with your favorite homemade ice cream, whipped cream, Cool Whip or non-dairy topping for a happy ending to your meal!
