This mini series was inspired by day trips to pick or pick up fresh peaches in places like Weatherford, Terrell, Pittsburg or Fairfield, Texas.  

If you stop by Fairfield make sure you go into the store right off I45 and get their homemade peach ice cream.  All I can say is, “you’re welcome”!

My grandparents in East Texas had a small peach orchard in their front yard and my other grandfather worked the first part of his career for a big peach growing operation in Weatherford.  

My grandmother’s cookbook included her famous Chicken Spaghetti and her instruction to serve it properly included pickled peaches on the side.
