    4                    Peaches
    1                    Large Orange
    1 1/2   tb           Quick Cooking Tapioca or
                         3 tbsp Cornstarch
            pn           Nutmeg
    1                    Egg
    2       c            Mixed berries, such as
                         Strawberries, blueberries
      1/2   c            Granulated Sugar
                         Pastry of 9-inch double
                         Crust pie
   1.  Preheat oven to 425 F.  Peel peaches, if you wish.  Slice into 1/2-inch
   wedges.  Then cut each wedge into 3 pieces.  They should measure about 3
   cups.  Place in a large bowl.  If using large strawberries, slice into 1/4
   inch thick piecesf.  Halve small strawberries.  Place in a measuring cup.
   Add other berries to make 2 cups.  Add berries to peaches.
   2.  Finely grate 1 teaspoon orange peel.  Place in a small bowl with 1/4
   cup freshly squeezed orange juice.  If using tapioca, for 20 minutes to
   softened.  Then add sugar and nutmeg and mix well to break up tapioca. Pour
   over fruit and toss until well distributed. If using cornstarch, stir with
   orange peel, sugar and nutmeg.  Then add to fruit along with 1/4 cup orange
   juice.  Toss well and set aside.
   3.  Meanwhile, roll out half the pastry and fit in a 9 inch pie plate. Trim
   edges to 1 inch beyond rim of plate.  Do not prick bottom.  To prepare
   lattice crust, roll remaining dough into a 10-inch circle, approximately
   1/8 inch thick.  Cut into 1/2 inch wide strips.  Turn filling into prepared
   crust.  Place half the strips over filling about 1 inch apart.  Repeat with
   remaining strips, placing them in opposite direction to form a diamond
   pattern.  Tirm strips so they are even with edge of pie.  Then bring over--
   hanging bottom crust up and over lattice strips.  Gently press together to
   seal edges then flute.
   4.  Beat egg in a small bowl with 2 teaspoons water.  Brush pastry with egg
   mixture.  Bake on bottom rack of preheated 425 F oven for 10 minutes. Then
   reduce heat to 350 F and continue baking for 40 to 45 minutes or until
   filling is bubbly and pastry is golden.
