Uses for Pickled Peaches?

r_l_kakos Jul 20, 2009 10:04 AM

Does anyone know what one does with pickled peaches? We were given a jar of homemade, home-canned, and they look beautiful, but I have no idea what to expect when I open the jar. Are they sweet? Savory? Vinegar-y? What would you serve them with? Or would you eat them all by themselves?

I did a quick search for them here, and basically I found a lot of things about pickles and peaches, but nothing together :-)

    I had not thought of pickled peaches in many, many, many years. My grandmother used to make them, but I never did. However, I have decided to make some and serve with the New Year's Day ham. Hope they go well together.

      Seems they might be excellent with roast duck or pork!

        I was surprised (years ago) to be served a bowl of pickled peaches for dessert...I was expecting them to be, well, like pickles, and was delighted to find them spicy and sweet with just a little bit of tang. Yum.

          A great way to use the vinegar is to heat it til just warm and add a little apple juice and brandy. A great toddy before bed or before a roaring fire.

              at a restaurant I went to this weekend, one of my tablemates raved about his appetier, which had pickled peaches layers with lots of dungeness crab and some thinly shaved fennel.

                they're sweet & sour, so depending on your preferences you can enjoy them with sweet or savory dishes. they're great with vanilla ice cream or yogurt, or as a side for baked ham, roast turkey, or buttermilk fried chicken.

                  Oooh... that buttermilk fried chicken sounds perfect. Thanks! I was terrified of opening them and being completely (off putting-ly) surprised.
