we went peach picking tuesday with another MDC mama (<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wave.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wave"> scbegonias) what can I do with 25lbs of peaches? so far on the list is;<br><br>
ice cream<br>
peach butter<br>
maybe a peach cobbler?<br>
and I will likely freeze a couple of bags too..<br><br>
I think we will still have some left though..if we don't eat them all of course! we already ate all the soft ones!<br><br>
has anyone made peach/jalapeno jelly? is it good? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:<br><br>
what would you make?<br><br><br><br>
btw~I also have 25lbs of asian pears and apples (combined weight) so any ideas for those would be appreciated too! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Peach butter sounds delicious! I would be freezing alot for throwing in smoothies. A peach smoothie sounds yummy and can take a lot of fruit. Peach berry muffins? Canned peaches?<br><br>
For the apples and asian pears you can make spiced apple-pearsauce, apple butter, apple & asian pear crisps and pies, cinnamon apple muffins.<br><br>
Ooh there are a bunch of great peach recipes <a href="http://web.foodnetwork.com/food/web/searchResults?searchString=peach&site=food&searchType=Recipe" target="_blank">HERE</a>

I would slice and freeze some, definitely! How about throwing together a bunch of pies and freezing those.<br><br>
Something I really like peaches in is a savory salsa (with tomatoes and green onion), you could do it on top of fish/chicken, etc. We dip chips in it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/drool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="drool">

Peaches in salsa are divine!<br><br>
How about a freezer jam? Something you could pull out later and stir into yogurt or pour over ice cream. It'd be lovely to have peaches in January. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
When I was a kid, my mom often made rice with sliced peaches and raisins (or cranberries or dried cherries) in it, cook with milk until creamy, top with more milk and a bit of brown sugar. Yum!!
