Me versus the peaches

I stopped by Butternut Farm today and picked over 25 pounds of peaches! I'm going to peel them and put them up in the freezer for baking and winter eating.

This is how you peel peaches the easy way: Peach Peeling. I however learned that peaches must truly be ripe before trying to blanch and peel! Oh did I fight with some of those peach skins and when they're not so ripe, they don't pull away from the pit so easily.

So, I have many more peaches sitting out and when they're ripe, I'll start blanching again and hope for better results. I really do think blanching works for peeling since I did have one or two peaches who peeled nicely.

Does anyone have any great peach recipes? I probably have 2-4 cups sliced up now. I'd love some recipes!

Here's my peach recipe:

1) wash off peach with cold water

2) eat it

Try Crockpot Tomato Sauce

It's something I want to try as well!

Or make some chili or even just chunk up some store bought pasta sauce.

Do a search on allrecipes.com for "tomatoes" and I'm sure your bound to come up with something tasty
