The Ultimate List Of Fresh Peach Recipes

Wondering what to do with fresh peaches? Find over 80 fresh peaches recipes on the song says, “Peaches come from a can.” And they can. But none of the recipes in our list of Peach Recipes use canned peaches. Only fresh peach recipes found their way onto this list.

After all the recipes, you’ll find tips on picking the perfect peach.

But, if you can’t find fresh peaches, you can substitute frozen peaches in most of these recipes. There are a few more details about that a little further down.

I broke this list into four categories, just to make it a little bit easier to handle.

There are drink recipes with peaches, sauces and spreads with peaches, savory recipes with peaches, and sweet recipes with peaches.

I tried really hard to not duplicate recipes with this peach recipes list. If I wasn’t careful, I could have put 100 peach cobblers on this. There are only two: one full size and one individual.

The Ultimate List Of Fresh Peach Recipes

Peach season peaks in the summer, and usually spans from May until September. So these recipes will be best around that time.

But you can still get peaches at the grocery store year round, so you really can make these recipes anytime.

If you do want to use frozen peaches, if that’s all you can find, frozen peaches work fine in drinks and smoothies. Frozen peaches work in recipes you’re going to bake too. That might actually make your pies easier because frozen peaches are already pealed and pitted.

So if need be, go with frozen.

But, stay away from canned peaches. Canned peaches are poached, which is a way of cooking. So since canned peaches are already cooked, that could change the recipes and cooking time. Frozen peaches are frozen raw, so you don’t have to worry about them being cooked already.

Tips For Picking The Perfect Peach

If you’re buying frozen peaches, you get what you get. But if you’re picking fresh peaches at the store, you have to pay a little more attention to pick the right one.

So, to make it easier, I put together a few tips for picking the perfect peach.

Look for firm peaches

You want peaches that aren’t soft and have a lot of integrity. So be sure to give the peaches a squeeze and make sure they’re firm. That’s what you’re looking for. If you find peaches that are soft, leave them at the store.

Peaches that are firm still need a little more time to ripen. So that means you can buy the peach at the store and not feel pressured to use it that day or even the next day. You’ll have a little more time before it ripens completely. If you choose a peach that is already soft, you’ll have to use the peach right away.

Avoid peaches with bruises

When peaches bruise, they start decaying at that spot. And they decay quickly. Which is as gross as they sound. If you bruise the peach at home, you’ll realize when you did it and you’ll be able to eat it right away. But when a peach bruises in the store, you have no concept of when that happened. So the entire peach could be rotten inside.
