What would you do with a dozen peaches?

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

    1. 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.

      1. What I just did last night with half a dozen was this:



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

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

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

              1. 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.

                1. 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.

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

                    1. 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


                      1. Bellinis! God, how I love them.

                          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?

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

                          1. 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.
