Simple Peach and Apple Strudel

Simple Peach and Apple Studel
Simple Peach and Apple Strudel Ingredients:

2 pcs chopped apples
3 pcs chopped peaches
1/2 tsp cinnamon
some vanilla sugar
ready-to-bake pastry dough


Mix the apples, peaches, cinnamon and vanilla sugar in a bowl. Set aside. Spread the ready-to-bake pastry dough on a baking paper. In the middle of the dough, put the mixture; then fold the dough, making sure that you pinch the edges.

Bake on a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees (375 degrees) for 20-25 minutes.
Simply delicious peach and apple strudel
 It is best served hot with whipped cream and a scoop of ice cream. In our case,we added grapes, too.

Our peach tree

Here is our peach tree, giving us enough fruits this year. We are happy that the peach tree survived, it was almost rotting away last year. But the whole family decided against cutting it down. My husband decided to save it by cutting those extra branches that are already too dry to live. We did that to our greengage tree, too; that's why we don't have any this year. We can't wait for next year's harvest!
Peaches crunchy and juicy
And this week, our first harvest! Look at those fresh peaches. They might look unripe, but, believe me -- they are ripe enough. The peaches are crunchy and juicy despite having green-yellow-pink colors.
Wild grapes
And those wild grapes that we ignored last year? They are thriving in the very edge of our backyard. The girls grabbed a handful a few days ago and discovered their sweetness.
Peaches and grapes harvest
Therefore, we have more than enough grapes, too. Aren't we lucky to have these fruits in our backyard? Unfortunately, the apple trees are not bearing much fruits this year. In fact, only one apple tree in our backyard have fruits. And those trees in our mountain garden suffered because of the wet weather, too.

But hey, we still have our peaches, grapes and blackberries to enjoy. The yellow plums are gone, good things I have enough of those in the freezer :-)
