I have been hunting for peaches all over - Without success..I am no fan of canned stuff. But then since the season is all over, i thought of them ...I found 100's of candied 100 other things but No Peaches! Guess, I did lots of grumbling and mumbling, cos how else do i explain the incident which happened y'day evening..

My hubby returns from office and comes and whispers in my ear "I have a surprise for you..Bought u something which am sure U wud luv ". I am all ecstatic..trillion stuff went thro my mind thinking of which of those , which I wanted, was given to me as a surprise! I sure was grinning like a total Idiot! He asked me to close my eyes and placed a cover on my outstretched hands. Hubby - "Tada, open your eyes" . I am totally into the Mills & Boons world now and open my eyes with cinematic expressions ( with slow motion ) in my face. What do I see - I see a shopping Bag! What does it Have - One Can of Peaches!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OK Will spare all of u with the info and go to the recipe - Peach Custard from my cookbook and which will be my entry for Mansi's AFAM- Peach. Ya, dint like the way it photographed..wanted to tinker it a bit to make it better like Bee ; but no such luck, guess my photography skills no way match for Bee's ;-) ! But it sure tasted good although not such a looker!

hi DK shall i use fresh peaches for this recipe........

By Divya on Jul 28, 2009

I had a doubt. I tried this recipe, but the consistency came out quite thin. It didn't look that way in your pics. So, shd I make the custard thick? Also, shd I add the juice, too of the peaches? i didn't find it very sweet. Thanks
Hi Divya - thank you for trying this out. Yes the custard should be thick. Heat it until it comes together with a batter like consistency. Little more thicker than a thick buttermilk. I dint use the juice of the peaches. I drained and placed only the peaches on the baking sheet. I agree its not that sweet - the brown sugar adds to the sweetness in correct proportions. Hope this helps.

What a great idea that is. Peach custard looks really good. I've never tried baking the ready-made custard before. Good to know that it tastes good and the texture is uncompromised.
