Don’t you just love peach season? I know I do. Fresh peaches are heavenly! Ontario peaches are the best around! I cannot get enough of them during peach season.
I’ve been having so much fun making peach recipes this past couple of weeks. I made this gorgeous Peach Icebox Cake, peach salsa, peach cheesecake, peach jam, peach caramel sauce and peach cobbler.
Later this week I want to make peach pie. No summer is complete without making peach pie at least 3 or 4 times. I often freeze a couple so I can have peach pie year round.
One of my favourite things to do with peaches is to grill them. Grilling them brings out the natural sweetness of the peach. You can top them with ice cream and caramel sauce for an unforgettable dessert.
Types of Peaches:
- have a stone or pit
- found at your grocery store or farmer’s market
- available in Ontario from mid-August to end of September
- perfect for eating out of hand and preserving
- flesh partially clings to the pit
- perfect for eating out-of-hand
- available in Ontario from mid-July to mid-August
- heirloom variety that is short, flat and white-fleshed
- lower acidity level than other peaches
- pits cling to the fruit
- not usually available at retail
- used for commercial purposes such as canned peaches and jams
How to Pick the Perfect Peach:
- range in colour from light pink and cream to a reddish-yellow
- colour of a peach does not indicate ripeness
- avoid any with green colouring or soft spots
- look for heavy fruit with a creamy or yellow background
Storing Peaches Perfectly:
- You can ripen peaches by placing them in a loosely closed paper bag on your kitchen counter at room temperature!
- You can speed up the process of ripening by adding an apple to the paper bag!
- Once ripe you can store them in a plastic bag in the fridge!
- They will last for up to 5 to 7 days!
- To prevent peaches from browning you can use lemon juice on them after you slice them!
- Don’t wash peaches until you are ready to use them.
