Since we're still in the launch phase of Damned Yankee: The Story of a Marriage. . .
And since it's peach season at Costco, Sam's and the local orchards . . .
And since the second half of Damned Yankee takes place in central South Carolina, where the central characters try their hand at becoming peach farmers during the middle of the Civil War . . .
And since it's hard to sell large amounts of peaches when everyone is broke and there's a war waging nearby . . .
I've decided to share some peach recipes taken from Damned Yankee.
The first one is perhaps the most interesting, but I'm not recommending you try it. Sounds lethal to me!
Here's Jonathan's recipe for PEACH BRANDY! It still works!
1 Wash peaches, peel and pit them. Put pits and skins into your quart jar.
2 Boil the water and sugar into a medium syrup, fill quart jar to within one inch of top.
3 Seal quart jar and store in a cool, dry place for about 4-6 months. If you can bury it about a foot down, even better.
Sounds easy enough? OK, tomorrow we'll look for drink recipes in which to use it.
