Just peachy...

Fresh peaches... one of the small pleasures of life.

Having said that, I've never really been a fresh peach fan. Love 'em out of the can, but bite into a fresh peach? Oh gag, not on your life. That furry, fuzzy skin just grosses me out. Blecch!

Howsomever, last season I discovered how ridiculously easy it was to prepare (aka peel) and freeze the juicy little buggers so it's been a real treat to be able to enjoy fresh peaches all winter and spring.

We just finished our last pint a couple of weeks ago so the timing is just right. Peaches come into season right about now in our parts. This season's fruit has suffered a bit due to hail and other weather, but a little bruising here and there hasn't affected their deliciousness...

# in freezer = 14 pints
# in tummy = uhmmm, lots! ;)

sorry i have not been by lately...
but i must say i love peaches... fresh mostly...not much a can fan of them...but they cannot be soft which most people think i am strange about...i buy them and have to put them in the fridge to make the hard.
funny peach story...catherine was young...want to say 2 1/2 ish and i was running into the store for a quick minute and for the first time she was not put in a carriage...well she walked right up to the display of peaches and grabbed one and bit right into it. that was her first peach and well i nearly about died especially when i went to pay for it the cashier asked if i knew there was a bite taken out of it.

I'm with you on the fuzzy peach skin, Marianne. Not a fan of furry food. I can bite into a nectarine anytime, but peaches must be peeled!
