Peach Blueberry Muffins

Peach Blueberry Muffins

I like to use fresh fruit when I’m baking, but I have been known to use a wide variety of frozen and canned fruit, as well. These shelf-stable (or freezer-stable) options let me use my favorite fruits all year round, so I can enjoy ripe berries in the winter and homemade pumpkin bread in the spring if I am in the mood for it.

Dried Peach Oatmeal Cookies

Dried Peach Oatmeal Cookies

Oatmeal cookies with raisins are a classic, cookie jar favorite that never goes out of style. Raisins aren’t the only dried fruits that work well in oatmeal cookies, however, and you can really change up a recipe by playing around with different fruits. I used dried peaches in this twist on a traditional oatmeal cookie and the results were fantastic. Peaches not only have a ... Read More »

Skillet Peach and Mango Crisp

Skillet Peach and Mango Cobbler

Fruit crisps are wonderful desserts when you have a kitchen full of in-season fruits. There are many different variations on a classic crisp out there to choose from, including cobblers, buckles and grunts.

Usually, sugar is added to the mixture to make sure the balance of the flavor stays on the sweet side. Shrubs have been enjoying a comeback with the rise of the craft cocktail scene, as people look back to “classic” recipes from decades ago ... Read More »

Individual Peach and Honey Crumbles

Peach and Honey Crumble

As much as I like fruit cobblers and crisps, there are times when individual portions are a better option than a full sized baking dish full of cobbler. Individual portions – baked in small dishes or ramekins – make this type of rustic dessert look a little bit more elegant when you want to serve company, and they also offer built-in portion control if you ...

What are freestone peaches?

Freestone Peaches, pitted

You will often see peaches labeled as “freestone” or “clingstone” when shopping for fruit. These terms refer to different types of peaches, not specifically to different strains of the fruit. Many varieties of peaches exist, just like apples and other fruits, but most varieties of peaches are similar in terms of looks and flavor and you’ll rarely see a specific name (other than white or ...
