PEACHES

Peaches must be picked fully mature, they do not get sweeter after being picked; they will get softer and juicier, but not sweeter.

Cling or clingstone peaches have a pit to which the flesh 'clings'; freestone peaches have a pit from which the flesh is easily pulled away.


• The juice from canned peaches can be drained and thickened with flour or cornstarch to make a fruit sauce for ice cream or pancakes.

• Freeze the drained juice in an ice cube tray; use instead of ice cubes in cold drinks or iced tea.

• Use the drained juice as part of the liquid when making gelatin desserts.
 

• Slice peaches and add to your favorite cereal, or as a topper to pancakes or waffles.

• Take a peach or a cup of canned peaches to work or school for a lite snack.

• Include peaches in low fat yogurt or cottage cheese and put on toast.

• Combine peaches and other fresh fruits into a fruit salad and use as a dessert or appetizer before dinner. Keep it tasty and brightly colored by adding a bit of concentrated orange juice.

• Make a peach smoothie with yogurt and peaches in a blender for breakfast or a snack.

• Bake, grill, or broil and serve along with your favorite meat or fish dinners.

• As a dessert cut it fresh and add to angel food cake or over lowfat frozen yogurt

• Freeze a can of peaches in the freezer then open and blend in the blender for a great summer dessert sorbet.
