What can I do with a lot of fresh peaches?
Well, there are quite a few things you can do with a lot of fresh peaches! For starters, you could make some peach jam or preserves. If you're feeling really ambitious, you could make your own peach wine. Of course, you can always just eat them as is – they're delicious and nutritious that way, too.
What do peaches pair well with?
Peaches are such a versatile fruit and pair well with both savory and sweet dishes. For savory dishes, we love to combine peaches with grilled chicken or pork, bacon, blue cheese, and balsamic vinegar. For sweet dishes, we love to combine peaches with vanilla ice cream or yogurt, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg, and mascarpone cheese. What's your favorite peach dish?
Can you freeze peaches?
Yes, you can freeze peaches. First, blanch them in boiling water for a minute to stop the enzymes that cause browning. Then, put them in ice water to cool off. Drain them and then freeze them on a cookie sheet. Once they're frozen, put them in a bag or container.
