It’s National Peach Month!! Have you ever had a fried peach? It’s like 3 minutes in Heaven, which I’ve actually never played that game, but the point is, WOW. Fried peaches are amazing. Gosh, that cinnamon sugary, fried sweet deliciousness.
Peaches always make me think of my mom’s Dutch Oven Cobbler, and Peach Crisp, which are two of the most wonderful parts of any camping trip or summer dinner.
My family loved to go camping growing up. I hate that we still have not taken our children, but the fact remains-my husband would rather die than go camping. Maybe not truly die, but pretty close. He is a cabin man. I am a tent girl. I think it’s fun to get all dirty, tired and explore nature, and the food is the best part. I don’t know if it’s from getting so tired from set up, hiking, building fires etc, or what, but I love dutch oven cooking.
These fried peaches remind me of the cobbler, camping days. Camping created such wonderful memories for my family. We played games, sang songs and always ended the night with a family campfire. These are the memories that we still love to talk. Every family needs to find a moment to head out to nature and “unplug”. Back in the day (ha! I can’t believe it really was so long ago) we didn’t have to “unplug” from anything, but we still needed to get away from life.
What ways do you escape together?
Now, go grab a peach and let’s fry that sucka!
It’s clearly getting a bit melty around here.
Deep Fried Peaches and Icecream
1 cup Flour
1 Cup Milk
1 Tablespoon Sugar
1 Large Egg
3/4 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Sea Salt
4 Large Peaches, sliced in half, pit removed
Vanilla Ice Cream
Fresh Whipped Cream
Place the open peach halves on a cutting board and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Set aside for 30 minutes.
Fill a pie dish or bowl with about 3/4 Cup Cinnamon Sugar, set aside.
Whisk together the flour, milk, sugar, egg, baking powder and sea salt. The batter should end up nice and smooth. Set aside.
Fill a large pot with peanut oil (if you have allergies use Canola, peanut just heats up hotter and doesn’t burn as fast). Heat over medium high heat. Once the oil begins to pop and snap (drop a little water in or put a wooden spoon handle to the bottom to test it) you are ready to go.
Add each peach half to the batter and coat evenly. Quickly lift out and let drip a little, add to the hot oil. Fry for about 3 minutes (I swear my stove heats weird so keep an eye on these), turning occasionally, until lightly golden.
Immediately drop the peach in the reserved cinnamon sugar, turning to coat. Set into ice cream dishes, top with ice cream, whipped cream, cinnamon sugar and fresh berries. Die and go to heaven, it’s that good.
