Peach Wood

I have bad news.. the peach tree died. I’m not giving up though and now I’ve already planted peach tree #4. I’ve had the most success with this last one, though this past winter was too harsh for it. It set a few sprouts this spring, but then kaput. I’ve had it for about 6 years.

The wood is still relatively fresh and uncured, so it’s fragrant. When split, it smells like a peach pit, but woodsier with a definite amaretto-like sweetness. The smoke smells of a delicious campfire.

This is the new wood for the smoker. The twigs are debris for edible mushrooms. Nothing is wasted.
