Millions of Peaches, Peaches for me

The girls & I headed down to the (hot) Central Valley with my sisters & mom to visit my Grammy (and our cousins) earlier this week.
One of the perks about living in the (very hot) Central Valley is all the fresh produce that you can buy on the side of the road.
My mom picked up several lugs of fresh peaches for us to bring home.
One of my favorite things to eat on summer nights is freshly sliced peaches sprinkled very lightly with sugar & served over Vanilla Bean ice cream.
But, I have TONS of peaches & they are going to go bad before we can eat all of them.
What should I do with all these peaches?
Anyone have a good peach cobbler/peach crisp recipe?
Or any other type of peachy recipe?
If you do, post the link in the comments & you will be my BFF!
I can't let all these peaches go to waste!

  1. MMM..yep one of the perks (if there is one!) to melting here in the Central Valley ;) Did you pick up any nectarines? They have been super yummy too! Don't have a peach recipe, eat them the same way you do! :) Check out recipezaar.com, they always have great recipes on there. If you filter them by ratings, you'll get the best ones! Good luck :)

  2. You are lucky! I am posting a peach ice cream recipe tomorrow. But I will do you a favor and post it here today.

    Peach ice cream is such an awesome southern thing!


    PEACH ICE CREAM
    2 cups finely chopped peaches, peeled if you prefer (I'm lazy)
    1 1/4 cups sugar
    juice of 1/2 lemon
    2 large eggs
    2 cups heavy or whipping cream
    1 cup milk

    1. Combine peaches, 1/2 cup sugar, and lemon juice in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours, stirring every 30 minutes.
    2. Remove the peaches and drain the juice into another bowl. Return peaches to fridge.
    3. Whisk eggs until light and fluffy. Whisk in remaining 3/4 cup sugar until completely blended. Pour in cream and milk and whisk to blend. Add peach juice and blend.
    4. Transfer to ice cream maker and freeze.
    5. After ice cream stiffens (2 minutes before it is done) add peaches and continue freezing until ice cream is ready.

  3. LOL, I'm melting here in Sacramento ;)

    You can always add some peaches to smoothies - that should help with the heat, too!

  4. Yummy! They look so good. I think you could make the peach crisp just like apple crisp, but I don't know off the top of my head...sorry.

    Enjoy the peaches!

  6. oh i am totally on a peach kick! can't get enough of them. we've been grilling them. cut up a few peaches into slices then toss a 1/4 cup brown sugar and tsp. of vanilla and mix. then toss them on the grill for a a few minutes turning once. they're delicious. hubs like his with ice cream and i sprinkle some granola on top and eat them plain.
