Peach Tips & Recipe Wins {from Pinterest}

Pin It Now!

In May my hubby, my daughter, and I picked peaches at a local farm. Surrounded by the heavenly scent of spring sweetness, we carefully selected about 9 lbs. of beautiful fruit. Knowing that most of my family of 5 wouldn't eat the fruit, I turned to Pinterest and started pinning away. Here's what I've done so far. I only have about a cup of frozen peaches left, so I guess I will have to wait until next peach season to try out all the other recipes I pinned.

Peach Crumb Pie  {Can't Stay Out of the Kitchen}

The one thing I absolutely loved about this pie was that it kept it's shape when cut. The flavor was yummy, too.

I'd change the way I cut my peaches, though. I'd slice bigger pieces instead of cutting into cubes. I'd already cut all my peaches into cubes, so I had no choice when I decided to give this pie a try.

Next time, I'd like to try and make the pie just a tad bit juicer. It's a recipe I'd definitely try again and maybe experiment with different fruits.

Paula Deen's Peach Cobbler  {Stockpiling Moms}

Well, goodness. This cobbler didn't last long at our house. Huge hit. Add a little vanilla ice cream or some whipped cream, and you are all set!

How to Peel Peaches {Queen Bee Coupons}

I was thankful for this tutorial since I'd never peeled peaches this way before. It was pretty quick and easy just like the post said. I did have a couple of peaches that weren't as ripe as the rest, and those were a little harder to peel. Definitely great for when you have lots of peaches!

How to Freeze Peaches {Queen Bee Coupons}

I also followed Queen Bee Coupon's instructions on how to freeze peaches. I freeze fruit all of the time for smoothies, but I usually just throw the fruit in a zip loc freezer bag not caring if some of it clumps together. However, since I wanted to use these peach pieces for recipes, I wanted to freeze them the "right" way. :)

Easy Peach Tea {Passion for Savings}

I love peach flavored drinks. And I love tea. So, when I saw this recipe, I knew I had to try it out. It was really yummy and refreshing. The above picture shows the peach syrup, not the peach tea. Click the above link for pictures of what the tea looks like. I didn't add actual peach slices to my tea, though.

Peach Lemonade Smoothie {Not from Pinterest}

I make smoothies quite a bit, especially now that my older boys don't really like eating fruit all that much anymore. I rarely, if ever, make peach smoothies, so this was a treat!

Since I've been making smoothies for years now, I don't really follow recipes, but here's what I did. I put about 1 frozen banana and about 2 cups frozen peaches in my Ninja blender. Then I added about 1 cup of yogurt. After that, I filled the blender with peach lemonade up to about the #6 line, so I'd have enough for 5 people. It was delicious!

Looks like you get the peach recipe queen award! I love picking apples, peaches, and other in season fruits with my children and teaching them how to cook.

I used to love peach everything when I was growing up, now I can't remember the last time I had peach. Thank you for linking up to last week's Tasty Tuesday linky. I have pinned your recipe the the Tasty Tuesday Pinterest board. I hope you'll join us again this week!
