Servings: 6 to 8 servings
Prep Time: 45 min
Cook Time: 1 hour
1 9-inch pie, top crust
1/2 stick of butter
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons quick cooking tapioca
3 1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoon Fruit Fresh, fruit preservative
9 lb fresh peaches
1 teaspoon cinnamon or nutmeg
To peel the peaches, first bring a pot of water to a boil. Using a paring knife, score the peaches with an X into the skins only. Gently drop the peaches in the boiling water for approximately 30 seconds to 1 minute. Using a slotted spoon, remove the peaches and place them in iced water for a minute. The skins should slip off easily. If not, place back into the boiling water for another 30 seconds.
Slice the peaches and put them in a bowl. Sprinkle Fresh Fruit and sugar, and stir into peaches. Stir in remaining ingredients and mix well.
Line 4 pie pans with heavy foil or freezer paper, placing a piece of plastic wrap over foil. Put 4 to 5 cups filling each pan. Loosely fold wrapping around pie and freeze until firm. When filling is frozen solid, remove from pans and wrap tightly. Return to freezer until ready to use.
On pie baking day, simply place frozen pie filling in pie shell, add half a stick of butter and sprinkle with cinnamon or nutmeg. Top pie with an additional pastry crust, seal well, and bake for 50 to 60 minutes.
