Peach season

So now that it is peach season, I would love to know what wonderful things you guys are doing with your peaches. Anybody got a nice recipe for a peachy salsa? Any favorite varieties? If you want to see what I am doing, check out my peach upside down cake recipe in the "Biggest Influence Family Recipes" thread.

    I love fresh peaches. Peach ice cream, peaches and creme, just plain peaches, peach jelly, peaches in the corn flakes and lastly peaches in the Baccardi

    Like Sundancer, I like peaches any way at all. In 2 weeks, I will be going to a folk festival where ladies from a local church have big washtubs full of peaches that they scald, peel and slice, then serve them about 2 minutes later over scoops of vanilla ice cream. I like to make this recipe on the grill:

    GRILLED STUFFED PEACHES – serves 4

    4 large peaches
    2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
    1/ 3 cup quick-cooking oats
    2 Tbs. firmly packed light brown sugar
    1 Tbs. finely chopped almonds
    1 Tbs. butter, melted
    1/ 2 tsp. cinnamon

    In a large pot of boiling water, cook the whole peaches for 30 seconds. Rinse them under cold water and carefully peel the skins. Halve and pit the peaches and cut a very thin slice from the back of each so it will lie flat. In a bowl, toss the peach halves with the lemon juice.

    Preheat the grill to medium heat. Combine the remaining ingredients and divide evenly, filling the centers of the peach halves. Place the filled peaches on the grill and cook, covered, for 5 or 6 minutes or until the peaches are tender. Place the peach halves on 4 plates and serve hot or warm. (161 calories per serving)

    RubyRose: That grill peach thing sounds real good. Makes a neat dessert while you are doing the BBQ thing.

    Thanks

    A family favorite is a dish that I made up and call it Peaches Foster........I make it just the way one would make Bananas Foster and serve it over homemade vanilla ice cream........it is great! I will be going "Peach picking" next week as peach pie is another family favorite here.

    Just eat a fresh peach; sprinkle sugar on peach slices and after a while eat peaches & juice on, topped by, or with vanilla ice cream (preferably homemade & hand cranked); make a peach cobbler; freeze some for later use; put up some as peach preserves to enjoy throughout the year.

    The best peach cobbler recipe I ever got: "Cut up a bunch of skinned peaches and put them in a casserole dish. Pour over sugar until you can't see the peaches anymore. Cut up butter over it until you can't see the sugar anymore. Cover with pie dough, slash it with a knife and bake it."

    Oh, and I add a little nutmeg.

    I do love a peach cobbler; I've gotten fond of getting the fruit hot, sweet and thick on the stovetop, then plopping on nearly-finished biscuits made from the cream biscuit recipe of James Beard (and Cooks Illustrated), and finishing the assembled casserole in the oven for a while to let everything thicken up and mingle....

    My favorite addition to peach cobbler is one that James Beard wrote about in one of his newspaper columns; a hefty splash of bourbon or rye whiskey with the fruit. It's really nice when the hooch is subtle - maybe 2T for a 9x13, but the flavor is an exceptional counterpoint to the fruit. With my method, I macerate the peaches for a while with the sugar, hooch and a bit of lemon juice /zest, then drain off the liquid, cooking it with the thickener a bit before adding the fruit.

    Is there anyone else out there that likes blueberries in their peach cobbler? When this time of year comes, I'll put together a blueberry-peach cobbler and eat it warm with a little vanilla ice cream to melt into it. Ummm - pure heaven!

    On my to Memphis from Nashville I stopped by a stand advertising peaches outside a dude's house in Jack's Creek off Route 100. Called his place Robison Orchards. He wanted to sell me a bag. I only wanted the canned preserves. He said they're perfect for fried peach pie. I said I'll use the preserves as spread. He insisted on its use as fried pie filling. Now I want to make fried pie. I have 3/4 of a Kerr jar full of Robison Orchards potted peaches for fried peach pie to do a little something with. Can anyone tell me how?

    We picked a bushel of peaches in 15 minutes this past Friday and are having so much fun cooking up different goodies as they ripen to perfection..........my daughter in law made blueberry-peach ice cream to go with our peach pie last evening. We had 6 guests from Germany and they were thrilled! It was the first time that 5 of them had ever had pie. They are now taking 3 pin tins back to Germany with them.

    Elise,
    Get over toPolly's for a Fresh Peach Melba pie. The filling is peach pieces piled high, with a crown of red raspberries ...then the whole thing has the usual peach glaze poured all over it.
    One of the things good about pies in SoCal !!
