I've got half of a case of peaches, and only a couple of ideas of what to do with them. Anyone have

I've got a great grilled flatbread that I could add grilled peach slices, goat cheese, balsamic reduction, and a simple vinaigrette-dressed arugula to. I was also thinking about making a peach ice cream with a blueberry jam. And I searched a couple subs and saw a peach French toast which seemed like it might be interesting for brunch service.

But I think there's something more innovative I can do with these peaches, I'm just not sure what that is.

Any ideas would be appreciated!

blanch/ peel/ cut in half/ quick pickle with brine of vinegar, brown sugar, mustard seeds, cloves, cinnamon, black peppercorns, red pepper flakes/ spoon and reserve some of flesh out to create bowl/ fill with shrimp/ top with reserved flesh mixed with yogurt, parsley, mint

or do an Asian version or East Indian version or Caribbean version

Make peach preserves or a peach salsa with avocado. A peach pound cake would be delicious. How about peach ice cream? A light salad made of fresh spinach, spring green and peach slices offset by feta or perhaps gorgonzola would be good. You could make a pork roast or pork chops with roasted peach slices.

Or you could simply eat them at your leisure with a delicious Gruner Veltliner, Voignier or perhaps a Riesling accompanied by a light cheese?

Given the time of year, perhaps a warm peach schnapps stirred with a cinnamon stick along with fresh, chilled peach slices would be nice?

Let us know how you use them. :)

Cheers!

Small dice with blanched & minced red onion, fresh mint or rosemary, bourbon, maple syrup, very little salt, and maybe a little white balsamic or ACV... pair with feta or chèvre, use it in a salad, with pork, chicken, duck, as a pallet cleanser... switch the bourbon with amaretto and add a little ginger maybe switch up the herbs in that arrangement

I agree with Brian,..
Peach pies are always nice..with a sugared lattice top.
Not sure on freezing, but the neighbors always love fresh hot pies! :)

Shh!
Freezing, pre-bake, works fine. My former neighbor would make and freeze so many pies that they lasted until the next peach season. And she froze so many de-stone peaches that the cobbler lasted just as long!

And as you say so correctly... the neighbors love it!!!!

I’m a photography enthusiast... especially contemporary fashion... so thanks...
