What would you do with a dozen peaches?

Frosty Melon Aug 17, 2007 09:44 AM

Just received a dozen Frog Hollow Farm peaches as a gift. Besides pie, what would you do with them?

    this is incredible (and doubles easily)

    GRILLED PEACHES (a dessert)

    4 large ripe peaches

    4 tablespoons unsalted butter
    1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
    1/4 cup dark rum
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    Pinch salt
    Peach or vanilla ice cream, for serving

    Halve peaches

    Combine the butter, brown sugar, rum, cinnamon, and salt in a saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Let the glaze boil until thick and syrupy, about 5 minutes.

    Prepare and preheat the grill to high. Brush and oil the grate.

    Place the peaches on the hot grate and grill until nicely browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side, basting with the rum and butter glaze.

    Spoon any remaining glaze over the grilled peaches and serve at once. Peach or vanilla ice cream makes a great accompaniment.

      Peach upside-down cake. Fresh out of the oven it's like a soft, sweet bit of heaven.

          I am not complaining about your freezer jam recipe, but it seems to me that is a lot
          of sugar for just 2 1/2 cups of fruit. Have you made this recipe before? and how was
          the sweetnes of that recipe?

          I'd eat a few and then probably make yummy freezer jam with the rest. yummmmm peach jam is good.

          Here's a recipe for no cook freezer jam

            You could try making peach (white) sangria. Yummy and refreshing for the summer.

              We recently made the peach ice cream from Nigella Lawson's Forever Summer cookbook and served it with some fresh diced peaches on the side. Nice summer dessert.

                Id hand one to each of my children and say "Eat, and thank God for the goodness of His creation!" But then I LOVE simple & pure.

                  I'd make some peach salsa! Perfect to go along with either grilled pork or chicken- or even with tortilla chips!

                    We slice fresh peaches into individual glasses of red wine...usually Lambrusco. Simple delicious dessert. Equally good in champaign.

                      My wife made a peach and blueberry clafouti (recipe adapted from Under the Tuscan Sun, Frances Mayes) that was out of this world good.

                          take five peaches, peel and slice into eigths, add one red pepper slivered, one red onion slivered, red wine vinegar, basil and some lime juice. Makes a great relish.
