Dried peach recipes?
- Pia Mar 26, 2012 08:28 AM
I have about half a pound of dried peaches. They're much chewier than dried apricots, so rather than just eating them I was thinking of baking something with them. Any ideas/recipes? Should I reconstitute with water before using them? I'm thinking of something more like a muffin or tart, rather than a compote or chutney, but I'm open to ideas.
You can use them in savory dishes with pork or chicken, or think tagine. In baking, I'd try to soften them up a bit with liquid so they're not too chewy.
i'd macerate them a bit in warm water or a mix of oj and water. they'd be lovely, chopped, in a bread or muffin that has hints of ginger or cinnamon. add almonds or pistachios for crunch. yum.
make tzimmes with sweet potatoes, carrots, and dried peaches. Cut all of it up, put in a baking pan, add oj and some ginger, bake an hour.
