Peach Bread


In case you did not know, southern Delaware is peach country. We grow some tasty peaches. And this year they are particularly good.

I have a cookbook from my favorite all-natural farm, Highland Orchards. In it is a recipe for peach bread by Elaine Linton, the farmer’s mother. I made the bread exactly as it is in the recipe, it tastes great. I have decided, though, that in the future I will chop the peaches instead of slicing them. I think that will spread the peaches out more consistently through the bread.

It is great toasted with a little butter.  And, oh, it is fabulous with Nutella!

  1. This looks amazing! I would even consider pureeing the peach so it’s more of a flavoured bread. Thanks for sharing this 🙂

    This is amazing, I am in the Dover area and would love to hear about your favorite, local sources of fruits, vegetables, and proteins.

    • Hi Jennifer! Aside from what I grow and what I get from small farmer friends, I focus on trying to get either organically grown or buy from folks who use minimal chemicals my main favorite sources are Filasky Produce in Middletown,
      Highland Orchards in Wilmington, TA Farms (for turkey), there are also a variety of small growers and stands I frequent but do not know their names (like the peach stand on 13 just north of Killens Pond State Park. I also buy local stuff from Bylers, Willeys, and Fifers. Redners also often carries produce from local farmers and lists who they are. I would be happy to go into more detail, you can contact me by email akreineroriginal@gmail.com

        The peach stand on 13 just north of Killen’s Pond State Park is owned by the Vansant family. They are a wonderful family, I went to school with their children. You should head to the Chestertown Farmers’ Market on a Saturday morning, it is wonderful and we are part of the Colchester Farm CSA program, which I love.
