/It’s summer and the perfect time to stop by the Farmer’s Market and grab some ingredients for a pie. Below is an easy recipe for a peach galette.
1 pie crust – buy or make
5-6 Peaches (sliced)— no need to peel them – and toss them with a spoonful of flour, no need for sugar, maybe some nutmeg or cinnamon, a splash of amaretto if you are feeling fancy, or vanilla, maybe some blueberries- give it a good toss
Roll the pie crust out into a good sized circle – about 12”
Put it on parchment paper on a cookie sheet then dump the peaches in the middle and spread them a bit leaving a good 2” of crust on the edge.
Fold the edges of the crust up over the filling leaving the center open, if you are feeling fancy brush the crust with an egg wash (one egg beaten with a teaspoon or so of water) and sprinkle with sugar or cinnamon sugar.
Bake at about 425 for about 35 – 40 min until brown and bubbly!
“Spotted lanternfly (SLF), Lycorma delicatula, is an invasive planthopper, native to Asia, that was first detected in 2014 in southeastern Pennsylvania. It feeds voraciously on many plants, including economically important crops like fruit trees, grapevines, hops, hardwoods, and ornamentals. If you think you have SLF, do not panic! First, make sure the insect you are seeing is the spotted lanternfly. Second, learn about its life cycle and habits. Third, determine what plants it is infesting and what it is not. Fourth, employ management strategies at the proper time of the year.”
