Ingredient Highlights: Peaches

Every summer, it seems, my grandma brings a large box to my mom just brimming with gorgeous, ripe, and juicy peaches. This year, we’re going to head up north ourselves to get in on this deliciousness. Brigham City Peach Days are something my mom looks forward to; she grew up in Brigham and the surrounding area so she has numerous memories from this special time. I don’t know why she’s never taken me there, but I have to go this year and see what I’ve been missing – and pick up a few peaches while I’m at it!

There's something for everyone in this collection of peach recipes! If you find yourself with too many peaches, these ideas will be helpful and delicious!I am excited to bring home a box full of peaches. So many possibilities! I know what you’re thinking, though. Don’t you dare let them go to waste! That is something I want to drill into my readers’ heads: throwing away food is just like throwing away money.

I have already given you tons of ways to use up leftover red cabbage, blueberries, and watermelon. So now I’m going to give you even more ways to use up peaches and get the most out of your hard-earned money.

First, these are some simple ways to use up your peaches:

Here are all the recipes I thought sounded amazing and that I’d like to try with the peaches I’ll be getting at Peach Days this year. For each recipe, I’ve listed the amount of peaches required, all the other ingredients you need to make it, and any other useful information.

  1. Thanks for sharing these recipes! We bought a bag of peaches a couple of weeks and I just couldn’t get enough of them! They were SO good. We bought another bag last week, and they are not good at all. 🙁 So upsetting. I’ve been trying to think of ways to use them up, so this post is really helpful! Thanks for sharing!
