I've done Apple Pandowdy. But how 'bout peaches?
I had lovely peaches from the local farmers' market. I blanched them to remove the skins, chopped them and mixed them with a cup of sugar, about 1/3 cup of tapioca, and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice.
As you see, I poured the peach mixture into a large cast iron pan, which had been heated with about 3 tablespoons of sizzling butter. I let it cook for about 15 minutes, so the peaches would be soft, and the tapioca would begin to work its thickening magic.
Then into a hot oven it went -- 425 degrees -- for 25 minutes.
Just as good as apples -- and besides, I love peaches WAY more than I do apples! I think I'm now of the opinion that a pandowdy beats a regular pie, any day.
