overripe peaches

aargh- got some nice white peaches, but let them get too soft- what can I do with them?

  1. I recently did the same and made up a nice batch of homemade salsa adding cut peaches to my tomatoes, jalapeno, garlic, red onion, cilantro, lime juice, etc. I also added some apple too - fantastic.

    1. Saute some Orange Roughy or similar fish. Make a buerre blanc. Add sliced peaches just before serving. Shockingly delicious.

      1. Poach in red wine, a little sugar, cinnamon stick, a few peppercorns...serve with good vanilla ice cream.

        1. I like the salsa idea as well. I just made a black bean, tropical fruit & queso blanco salsa that my guests went gaga over. The peaches could stand in for the fruit. Mix with a sherry or white balsamic vinaigrette.

            Yum!!! I need to remember to add black beans and fresh corn to my next salsa. Be fun to have a salsa party, everyone brings one to share - so creative and different they can be.

          2. peach cobbler.

            (i'd stir the sliced, peeled peaches with some sugar, maybe cook 5-8 minutes so it becomes more preserve-like -- before dabbling on the top of the above recipe).
