Momma's Peach Pie

Joan Rehfeldt


Dad was born in Texas so momma would always make gravy and her delicious peach pie's for him. In those days (1950's)there was a produce truck that came down our street about once a week and my mom got to know the driver well enough to ask him if she could purchase the last of the peaches on his route. You see, mom had to pinch pennies back then so making pies out of the extra ripe fruit was the only way she could afford the peaches. I remember momma peeling and piting the peaches until all hours of the night and her fingers were blistered~~So much LOVE went into those delicious pies.
