Peach Pie | Healthy Green Kitchen

Last winter, I heard about a this really cool kickstarter campaign for a book called Foraging & Feasting. The premise of the book: show people how to identify wild edible plants with gorgeous, instructive illustrations, then encourage them to harvest and cook the plants with recipes. I loved the idea of “connecting with nature through food and art”, and I was intrigued by the author’s self publishing model.

A couple of months later, I met the author, Dina Falconi. She lives near me and was teaching a homemade beauty products workshop in our area. I had a wonderful time: Dina is extremely knowledgable about herbs and natural health care. She inspired me to start making more of my own skin care items at home (I’ve been having lots of fun with that), and I have been eagerly awaiting the publication of her new book. I just knew it would be terrific.

Foraging and Feasting

Dina recently sent me a copy of the book and it is indeed terrific. Like me, Dina has been influenced by the work of Weston Price and Sally Fallon Morrell, and that influence is seen in her nourishing and delicious recipes (which highlight both foraged and cultivated plants). But this is so much more than a typical cookbook. About half of the book is brimming with information on the arts of foraging, harvesting, and wild plant identification.

foraging and feasting

The other half is the recipes, which I can’t really do justice in this post. They are beyond creative and so inspirational, and organized into chapters including Beverages, Relishes, Spreads and Condiments, Wild Salads, Soups, Sandwiches, Animal Kingdom Entrees, and Desserts. There are brilliant Master Recipes throughout the book, and Dina gives multiple suggestions for ways you can change up each and every one: this book is seriously so lovely, and it will teach you so much!

I had a hard time choosing which recipe to feature, but when I received a gorgeous box of Palisades Peaches from Aloha organic fruit in Grand Junction, Colorado, I knew peaches simply had to figure in.

I decided to go with this Peach Pie because it allowed the beautiful peaches (they were probably the very best I’ve ever tasted) to shine. I served the pie at a little dinner party and everyone really loved it!


Recipe for Fresh Peach Pie with Lemon Balm-Infused Whipped Cream and Coconut Apricot Crust

Yield: Makes a 9-inch pie

No cooking or baking is needed to make this lovely pie. Fresh peaches and herb-infused whipped cream are a winning combination; the grain-free crust is easy to make and delicious.

If you don't have access to lemon balm, you can make herb-infused whipped cream with mint or anise hyssop. If you don't have either of these, you can skip the infusing and just mix 2 teaspoons of vanilla in with the cream and sweetener before whipping. Other options for making your whipped cream tasty: a little cinnamon (1 teaspoon) or nutmeg (1/4 teaspoon), or 2 tablespoons of brandy, cognac, or rum (or a Fruit or Herbal spirit, the recipes for which are included in the book). You can also infuse your cream with fruit: Dina gives numerous suggestions for how to do this is the book.

Ingredients:

For the crust:

*2 cups dried, unsweetened coconut
*pinch of sea salt
*1 cup dried, moist, pitted apricots (I soaked mine in water for 10 minutes before using because they were very dry, but this was not part of the original recipe)
*1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the whipped cream:

*2 cups (1 pint) heavy cream, chilled, preferably organic, grass fed, and raw
*2 large handfuls of fresh lemon balm
*4 teaspoons sweetener of choice such as maple syrup, raw honey, or Sucanat

For the pie:

*2 cups sliced fresh peaches
*lemon balm-infused cream, whipped until thick and firm
*one Coconut Apricot Crust

Directions:

For the crust:

In a food processor, process coconut, salt, and apricots (drain them very well if you soaked them, like I did) until mixture holds together when pressed between your fingers. Add vanilla extract and process for 2-3 more seconds. Press crust into pie pan and refrigerate until ready to use.

For the whipped cream:

1. Place herbs in a small pot with the heavy cream and sweetener (if using honey, don't add it now: add it later, when you add the cream to the bowl right before whipping). Cover pot and bring to a gentle simmer. Let steep for 1 hour, then strain out plant material, squeezing out all of the liquid. Thoroughly chill cream to 38 degrees F.

2. Chill bowl and whisk (or which attachment, if using an electric mixer to whip to cream) in the freezer for a few minutes.

3. Place infused cream into bowl and whip until cream is fluffy and thickened, with some stiffness. Whipped cream should be luscious, billowy and shiny, not grainy (a result of over whipping). Use immediately or store in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. Whisk by hand just before serving. (Alternatively, you can whip your cream by hand: Dina suggests using a balloon whisk, and setting the bowl with the ingredients inside a larger bowl filled with ice water.)

For the pie:

Spoon whipped cream gently into the pie crust, distributing it evenly. Spread the peaches gently on top of the whipped cream. Serve right away.

    This recipe looks divine. I’m going to a virgo pie party in a few days and i’ll make this (possibly with raspberries because my roommate scored a bunch of free ones for us) or elderberries which i’m hoping to forage this week. I’m way into foraging for wild food too and coming up with yummy recipes.

    Oh Winnie, this sounds like a great book. I am always intrigued by foraging, especially after spending time with a guy in Mendocino who foraged for mushrooms. I have yet to make a pie or tart using the raw ingredient approach – I like the coconut in this crust, and will have to give it a try. Thanks for the inspiration.

    I would love a copy of your book. I am a fan of primitive hunting and camping. Foraging is part of this lifestyle. What I have seen from reviews and viewing sample pages is your book is one of the best illustrated books out there. That alone makes it a valuable book in itself. I enjoy being able to forage and feel confidant in what I just harvested.

    What a wonderful give away!!! My husband and I were discussing this very thing the other day. Including more natural plants in our diet is the way to go. We have been checking out new veggies and finding sources for them that are GE/GMO free and this would be a great addition to our plan to live life better. Thank you for the chance.

    Signed up. Would love this as I have been foraging in the back alleys of Montreal for the past few weeks…what are those red berries I keep seeing, this really is a huge elderberry bush, those grapes are tasty, what is that black berry, those mushrooms look tasty… YOu get the idea. Signing out from the Montreal Urban Forager. Thank you.
