We Picked Way Too Many Peaches…Ideas?

Peaches on a TreeYesterday we picked way too many peaches at the home of our friends’ Nancy and Sam. After giving many away, I still have about 12 gallons of peaches that I need to process. Aside from making jam, ice cream, compote, liqueur, sherbert and even freezing them, I am looking for suggestions…

Two months later and after some great suggestions, most of the peaches have been used or frozen for use later in the year. Below is a list of the posts highlighting the different recipes / uses for the peaches that were picked:

    Fruit leather. Delicious, preserves well, useful for snacking or experimenting (try snipping it into cookies, or scones) and you can try combos with other fruits…

    By the way, I once did the same thing with blueberries at a pick-your-own place in upstate New York. They gave out those 10 gallon industrial buckets for picking. Thought I only had a small amount but ended up with 8 lbs. The biggest problem was that we were on vacation and I had no means to freeze or preserve. I baked a lot of deep dish pies….

    Karen, Thank you for the suggestion. I attempted Peach Fruit Leather today with limited success. Your comment inspired me to experiment on making fruit leather from peaches.
