Because American grocery stories sell imported fruits and vegetables from all over the world, enjoying seasonal produce has lost some of its excitement. But peaches are one fruit that is very hard to find except in the summer. I actually am thankful for that scarcity since it makes peaches so much more precious to me.
When you find a source for locally grown peaches, stock up! Don't be afraid to buy a half bushel or a whole bushel. The price is signifigantly lower than what you pay at the supermarket, and you will have plenty to share with friends and family.
A gift of fresh fruit is thoughtful of your friend's health and well being. He will love you for it. So share your peaches generously. Then use these ideas for enjoying the rest of your bushel of peaches.
my favorite is yours, Jimmie :) fried peach pies is anything more delectable? do you use lard or crisco? type up your recipe will you please?
Peaches can help with anemia, high blood pressure, constipation, and dry cough.
My favorite is peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream.
There's no fruit I like better than a perfectly ripe, juicy peach, so much better if they're from the local farmers market than the grocery store. Peach cobbler is my recipe of choice -- and it's easy -- when I want to make use of extra peaches before they get over-ripe or go bad. This page is making me think about the three peaches ripening on my kitchen counter. Not quite there yet!
Would my apple corer work for a peach??? You've got me wondering.
I bought fresh peaches from an orchard two years ago and they wouldn't let us pick since the peaches are so delicate, but they were so yummy. Beautiful page to drool over.
Peach pie is my specialty. Makes my mouth water just looking at them.
I love peaches. Wrong season for us. This page really has me craving summer stone fruit. Nicely done. (we already used up all that we froze).
I really love peaches too. I make a nice peach chutney and serve it over pork or even salmon. It is so good. But peach cobbler is a perfect dessert and really pleases Jim.
I had a nice bowl of freshly sliced peaches with some vanilla frozen yogurt on top last night. Yum! I have some more that I going to put either in a pie or try some baked empanadas. They are such a treat. I'll keep these recipes in mind for the next batch I get.
Those were the days, when I canned my own. It is an undertaking, but so good in the dead of winter. I made sure not to over cook them, and used an ultralight syrup. But frozen are so convenient. Thanks for all these great ideas!
Oh yum! It's been so long since I had a peach - and unfortunately we'll have to wait a little longer in the southern hemisphere. I love the meal plans and the reminder that fruit works so well in salads and savoury dishes.
