Orr's Farm Market 2010 Peach Dessert Competition

Posted by  | August 12, 2010  at 6:46 PM  
Saturday, August 14, at 9AM, Orr's Farm Market in Martinsburg, WV, will be holding their annual Peach Dessert Competition. Entries will be judged on several criteria including flavor, appearance, and use of peaches. The winner will receive a $50 gift certificate, an official Orr's apron, and a gift basket!

To enter this year's competition call 304-263-1168 to register, and be sure to arrive bright and early Saturday morning with your peachiest dessert and a copy of the recipe.

Below are some of my personal favorite peach recipes, and they're not all desserts either!

Peach and Brie Quesadillas
1 cup - thinly sliced peeled firm ripe peaches (about 2 large)
1 tablespoon - chopped fresh chives (I was hesitant on the chives at first, but now I load them on; the flavor is amazing with the sweet peaches and creamy brie.)
1 teaspoon - brown sugar
3 ounces - brie cheese, thinly sliced
4 (8-inch) - flour tortillas

1. Combine peaches, chives, and sugar, tossing gently to coat.
2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
3. Arrange 1/4 of cheese and 1/4 of peach mixture over half of each tortilla; fold tortillas in half.
4. Coat pan with cooking spray. Place quesadillas in pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until tortillas are lightly browned and crisp.
5. Repeat procedure with remaining quesadillas.
6. Garnish with chive strips, if desired.
Grilled Peaches with Lemon Thyme
(From Mireille Guilliano's French Women Don't Get Fat )
4 - peaches
2 tablespoons - olive oil
1  teaspoon - honey
1/4 teaspoon - vanilla extract
4 sprigs - lemon thyme (if you're having trouble finding this, Good Natured in Martinsburg carries it)

1. Rinse peaches, pat dry, cut in half, and remove the pits.
2. Place peach halves in baking dish.
3. Mix olive oil, honey, and vanilla extract and pour over the peaches; sprinkle with coarsely chopped lemon thyme.
4. Marinate peaches for 20 minutes, turning over once and basting.
5. Broil or grill marinated peaches for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until peaches are tender but not soft.
6. Serve immediately, alone or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Peach Muffins with Streusel Topping
(Adapted from Lilly Pulitzer's Essentially Lilly: A Guide to Colorful Holidays)
3 - peaches, peeled, pitted, and chopped
2 1/2 cups - flour (all purpose, whole wheat, or whole wheat white will work depending on what you like)
1 teaspoon - baking powder
1/2 teaspoon - salt
8 tablespoons (1 stick) - butter
1 cup - granulated sugar
2 - eggs
1 teaspoon - vanilla extract
1 cup - sour cream

for the topping...

1/4 cup - packed light brown sugar
2 tablespoons - butter
2 tablespoons - flour
1/2 teaspoon - cinnamon
1/4 finely chopped pecans (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 350°F
2. Lightly grease a muffin tin (recipe makes 12 muffins)
3. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together.
4. Beat butter and sugar in medium bowl with a mixer on high speed until mixture is light and fluffy (3 min).
5. Add eggs one at a time, beating continuously, and then add vanilla.
6. Drop mixer speed to low, and then beat in 3 additions of flour, alternating with 2 additions of sour cream.
7. Mix until combined, but be sure to not overbeat!
8. Fold chopped peaches into the mixture, and pour into muffin tins. Set aside.
9. Rub brown sugar, butter, flour, and cinnamon together in a small bowl using your fingers (or the backs of 2 forks works too), and then if you're using pecans, add those in as well.
10. Lightly pat streusel topping onto the unbaked muffin tops.
11. Baking 20 - 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the muffins comes out clean.
12. Allow to cool in pans for 5 minutes.
13. Serve warm or cooled to room temperature for breakfast, dessert, or just an afternoon snack :)
