Make a simple peach pie. And maybe some jam. Oh and how about some sorbet? But you'll need an ice cream maker for that...

bleu said...

OHHHH they look so good. Peach Pie, Peach Cobbler, Peach Calflouti, peaches in fresh cream, Peach Jam, freeze some for winter peach compote, peach daiquiris, peach smoothies.

I wish you lived near me!!!!!!

Pie. With a handful of blueberries and/or raspberries if you can still find those. If you do gin, I also have a lovely drink recipe involving peaches and frozen lemonade, but I'll need to run and track it down.

Hopping in the car now . . .

grilled peach melba

3/4 cup sugar, plus 1 tablespoon
3/4 cup water
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice, divided
1 vanilla bean, scraped
4 medium peaches, peeled, pitted, and cut in half
8 ounces frozen raspberries, thawed
Vanilla ice cream, for serving

Preheat a grill to medium-high heat.

Place 3/4 cup sugar, water, 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice, and the seeds from the vanilla bean into a small saucepan and set over high heat. Bring the mixture to a boil and boil for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat. Add the peaches; spooning the sauce over them. Set aside.

Place the raspberries, the remaining 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon sugar into the bowl of a food processor and puree. Pass the mixture through a fine mesh sieve into a small bowl. Cover and set in the refrigerator.

Once the grill is hot, place the peaches over direct heat and grill on each side for 3 to 4 minutes or until they are tender. Remove from the heat to a container with the syrup and cover with aluminum foil for 5 minutes.

To serve, place the ice cream into 4 bowls and top each bowl with 2 peach halves. Drizzle each bowl with the raspberry sauce and serve immediately.

The Nanny said...

Ahhhh, girl...I love fresh peaches. My mom & I make a mean peach pie.

Rachel said...

I just got peaches from the orchard, too.

Pbugs Mommy said...

Those are be-yoo-ti-ful! Being from the peach state, I have to say cobbler. Definitely.

This is my favorite cobbler recipe. It's from Paula Deen and super-easy. Now I just need your address and I'll be on my way over.

4 cups peeled, sliced peaches
2 cups sugar, divided
1/2 cup water
8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter
1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
1 1/2 cups milk
ground cinnamon, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine the peaches, 1 cup sugar, and water in a saucepan and mix well. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat.

Put the butter in a 3-quart baking dish and place in oven to melt.

Mix remaining 1 cup sugar, flour, and milk slowly to prevent clumping. Pour mixture over melted butter. Do not stir. Spoon fruit on top, gently pouring in syrup. Sprinkle top with ground cinnamon, if using. Batter will rise to top during baking. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes.

To serve, scoop onto a plate and serve with your choice of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

Slice them, put them in a frying pan with butter, cinnamon and brandy and cook them until they are heated through, then put them, steaming hot over vanilla ice cream.

I LOVE these photos! I don't care for peaches. I like cherry pie and apple crisp. But I love me those photos!!!

The Nanny said...

***wait. I meant peach cobbler. And unfortunately, I don't have the recipe for it here. But I know it involves a lot of butter. And sugar. Yum.

Peach Jam!

delphi said...

Peach Rum sauce - recipe on my blog.

Ms. Planner said...

If - and only if - you are feeling more hopeful, perhaps you could make and freeze a little peach puree for b_ _ _ food. If I calculate correctly, it will not yet be peach season when you will begin to need it next spring.

Monica H said...

Peach Upside-Down Cake! This recipe is for plums, but sub with peaches and it could be something amazing!

Amelie said...

Jam? Lots of peach jam so that you could mail a glass over to Spain?

Megan said...

Halve peaches and put them in a buttered baking dish. Top generously with coarsely crushed Italian almond cookies and dot with more butter. Bake until bubbly.

a la betty crocker, the goddess of all dessert recipes. the old book.

i wish i lived in the area. i'd be banging down your door to make myself a belated birthday pie!

debbie said...

How about cutting them in half, taking out the pit and putting them face down on the grill (set to about medium) for approximately five minutes on each side. Serve warm, fresh from the grill with vanilla ice cream. Yummy!

Which Box said...

Just peaches. I never had my last peach of the season, and I fear I've missed my chance.

Missing said...

I like to simmer the peaches gently with just a dab of sugar. Put it in a glass pan with streusal(butter, sugar and a little flour) topping and pop it into the oven until brown (sorry, I have never used and acutal recipe)
Keeps the peaches true to taste without too much sugar.
I wish I lived less than 3,000 miles away!

Azaera said...

Damn wish I lived wherever you live. I love peaches :D

Antigone said...

I can't restrain myself. I just can't.

One little glass???

I take the peaches, cut them down the middle, scoop out the pit and a little bit of the rough stuff to make a pocket. I fill that pocket with crushed cinnamon graham crackers, nutmeg, and a pat of butter on the top. Cook 425F for 30 minutes or until tender throughout. I serve with vanilla icecream or cool whip on the top! YUMMY!
LOVE peaches!
