Peach Puree

What do you do with all those leftover summer peaches?  After you're done canning, jamming and desserted yourself out, consider a simple peach puree.  It's a great way to store the summer harvest and save it to use in many different ways.

















To make your puree, rinse your peaches under cold water.  Dip peaches in boiling water for 30-60 minutes then place them in an ice water bath.  The skins should be easy to remove at this point.  Remove skins and pits and roughly chop peaches.  Place the peaches in a blender and puree.  As an alternative, you can use an immersion blender to puree the peaches.
















I poured some of the puree into quart jars and placed them in the freezer to use later.

The Peach Puree is multi-functional.  Use it in cocktails or virgin drinks (such as a Peach Lemonade).  Use it to make bread or fruit leather.  It's uses are endless!!
