Spiced Peaches

Similar to onions, peaches are important to the characters in Holes. Katherine Barlow made delicious spiced peaches. She used these peaches to pay Sam for the work he did on the schoolhouse. Zero found some of these peaches in the boat, the Mary Lou. He was able to survive living in the desert by using the overturned boat as shelter and eating the spiced peaches.


Students enjoyed making spiced peaches. They were served warm over vanilla ice cream. YUM!!

  • 8 ounces cream cheese -- cubed
