Peach Recipe Ideas

Peach Salsa

Great for the plethora of tomatoes from your garden! I usually just throw in whatever of the following ingredients I have on hand:

2-3 large tomatoes, peeled and diced

2 peaches, peeled, pitted and diced

1 bell pepper or spicy pepper diced

1/4 red onion, finely diced

1-2 cloves of garlic, minced (a sprinkle of garlic powder will work as well)

1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped

juice from 1 lime (or lemon)

dash of salt

(adding leftover sweet corn can be nice as well!)

Combine all ingredients and enjoy with some tortilla chips!

Peach Guacamole

Absolutely delicious with some baked salmon or shrimp seasoned with equal parts of paprika, cumin, onion powder, salt and chili powder.

Peach Pastry

I have made these twice already this peach season because it is easy, beautiful and delicious! They don’t even last long enough for a photo… I use fresh peaches from the orchard, not frozen.

Canning

I have never tried canning- I always eat the peaches too quickly… Here are some directions if you’re looking to give it a try!

A friend who is an avid canner, advised me to be careful and use proper canning methods to ensure the food is safely preserved. She advised looking at this site as well:
