I live in Palisade Peach country, some say, we have the best peaches cobblers in the world! It is also true that we have an abundance of them all around us.
Surely, you’ll find this type of fruits where you live, as long it’s the season. But do remember that peaches tend to go from rock-solid to super mushy within 1-2 weeks, so it is important to keep an eye and eat or use them up quickly.
And to help you with that, we’ve listed some great recipe ideas for you to learn and make it at home.
Here are some (ideas) recipes using peaches
1. Peach Salsa
By the time I have an abundance of fresh
peaches, I also have a plethora of tomatoes, onions, and jalapeños. Peach salsa is the perfect mix of spicy and sweet. I enjoy this peach salsa recipe from Ree at The Pioneer Woman Cooks. Instead of using canned peach, use fresh ones, remember to peel the skin as they taste better.
2. Peach Cobbler Recipes
The perfect summer dessert! It puts peaches on center stage. I love this Fresh Peach Cobbler recipe from the “A Sweet Pea Chef”. Most of the ingredients you probably already have at home, so you can get ready and bake it right away. Try to add a one or two peaches to your vegan or vegetarian salads.
3. Peach Ice Cream/ Sorbet
You will get yummy flavours from an ice cream or sorbet. We tried peach vanilla ice cream, oh my, that’s super yummy and the best part is that you can freeze the whole peaches, which saves you so much time.
4. Peach Muffins
Incorporate peaches into your breakfast through muffins or other pieces of bread. Just dice them up without skin and add them into any pre-made batter. My favourite is – using a blueberry muffin mix and adding in peaches, the flavour is simply divine.
5. Oatmeal & Cereal Topping
I eat a bowl of oatmeal every morning & my favourite topping is a diced fresh peach. Try it, you will love it!
You can freeze peach slices to throw into your superfood smoothies throughout the year. To freeze peaches, get rid of the skin, cut them into cubes or slices, and then pack and freeze in a ziplock bag with a tiny bit of water.
7. Peach Tarte Tatin
You guys are going to love this Tart Tatin from online culinary school. It is a famous French upside-down on the apple tart. Easy to make it by covering the bottom of a shallow baking dish with butter, sugar, then, well.. watch it. Fun and easy 🙂 to make it. All with clear instructions.
8. Grilled Peaches
Everything is better on the grill, and there is no exception when it comes to peaches. The grill marks add a great finishing touch.
Fresh peach juice is delicious! It can be high in natural sugars, so try to control how much you consume in one sitting. When juicing, be sure to throw away the pit, as it is said to have trace amounts of Sinai in it.
Of course, if you have a surplus of peaches, you can always can them to eat through the year. Don’t know how to can? Try finding a canning class at your local community college.
