Tips for Cooking with Peaches

“To impress, use fresh peaches.” — Dflemxnx33

“When choosing peaches, be sure that they do not have any green on the skin — this means the fruit hadn’t developed before being picked.” — patreesha

“I used fresh peaches and left the skins on for simplicity. They were barely noticeable the first night, but when I ate the leftovers they were kind of chewy and annoying.”– blessedmommy

“To remove the skin from peaches try blanching them; 30-45 seconds in boiling hot water taken off the heat followed by 15 seconds in an ice bath (to keep the peach from continuing to cook).”– Molly

“If you don’t have flavorful, in-season peaches then go with frozen peaches–they are better than tasteless, grainy, fresh ones.”– ripple2
