Peaches Care Tips

Living in norther Florida gives us easy access to delicious peaches form the Georgia peach trees. We love peaches and you will find some great recipes using peaches in this article. Peaches are delicious and a very healthy fruit to eat.

Tips:

  • Peaches should be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days in a plastic bag.
  • Wash peaches under cold running water to removed any dirt.
  • If a recipe calls for for peeled peaches, dip peaches cut in half in boiling water for 30 seconds which will loosen the skin, then remove the peaches with a spoon and dip in cold water. The skins will slide off.
  • To keep peaches from turning brown while preparing them for a recipe sprinkle them with lemon or orange juice.
  • If you peaches are ripe enough, place them in a bag at room temperature and check them daily until they are soft enough to eat.

Bake pecans in a single layer in a shallow pan 8 to I0 minutes or until toasted and fragrant; stirring halfway through. Cool I5 minutes. I use the toaster oven which works well for the pecans.

Stir together flour and next 6 ingredients in a large bowl; add peaches, next 4 ingredients, and toasted pecans, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Spoon batter into 9" x 5" lightly greases loaf pan.

Bake at 350° fir 1 hour and 5-10 minutes. A long wooden toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes, then, remove from pan and continue cooling of wire rack for 1 hour.

Fresh Peaches and Pie

Recipe for Peach Pie

Ingredients:

  • 4 generous cups peeled, sliced, fresh peaches
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp. flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp. melted butter
  • 1 drop almond extract

Combine the peaches, sugar, flour, salt and butter. Add the almond extract only if the peaches are not very flavorful.

Pastry for a 2-crust pie:

I usually purchase a ready-made pie crust from the refrigerator section of the grocery store. Of course, if you have a favorite pie crust then go with it.

Place bottom pie crust in a 9 inch pie pan. Place pie mixture on top of crust.

Cut the upper crust into eight strips. Moisten the edge of the lower crust, lay the strips across the pie in 2 directions and Interlace to form lattice. Press ends gently against lower crust and trim off even with pie rim. You use your fingers or fork tines to crimp the edges of the crust.

Bake 15-17 minutes, at 400°, then reduce heat to 350° and bake another 25 to 30 minutes or until pastry is well browned and juice bubbles up through lattice.

Remove to cake rack to cool until it's lukewarm and then serve!

I love fresh peaches. I can't wait for peach season. The salsa is interesting and great in the fall. I generally don't make many deserts with the fresh peaches because I eat them as fast as I can peel them.
