So this is how the conversation went after I made this wonderful fresh peach pie. My daughter said to my son ” how is it, is it worth the calories”? 

His response, “so totally worth the calories, yum”!

The peach season is quickly coming to an end, and so before I canned all of the peaches that I had, I decided to make this yummy peach pie! We all decided that it was worth the calories and that peaches are one fruit that my little bit picky eater son, will eat in a pie.

Is Minute Tapioca the Same as Instant Tapioca?

Minute Tapioca is the brand name for instant tapioca owned by Kraft, so yes it is the same.


Crumble Topping or Pie Crust Top on Fresh Peach Pie?

I find that when using the crumble topping instead of the pie crust top, the pie bakes up and cools with a slightly thicker filling (probably thanks to the flour in the crumble topping). 

Is Fresh Peach Pie Best Served Warm or at Room Temperature?

  • If you allow the baked pie to cool to room temperature the filling will set-up enough to hold in place.
  • Warm pie is amazing, so if you can’t wait for the pie to cool and the filling spreads a little, I’m sure that your pie eaters won’t mind, especially if there is a scoop of ice cream on top!

What is the Best Way to Store Fresh Peach Pie?

  • You can cover and leave the pie at room temperature for a day or two.
  • Or refrigerate leftovers and keep it for up to 4 or 5 days.

I cannot tell a lie, I used a crust that I purchased at the store. I have not quite got the art of making pie crust down yet. I can make it, but I have a hard time making them all nice and round. 


  • Select peaches that are firm with no shriveled skin
  • The peaches should be very fragrant
  • The fruit should be slightly soft when gently squeezed
  • Check for bruises and avoid damaged fruit
  • Color is a good indicator of great fruit, pick those with deep, rich hues
  • Large peaches have the most sugar, select medium to large peaches
  • Buy local if you can. Local peaches have spent less time traveling and more time on the tree  ripening
