Summer Peach Shrub

Peach Shrub

A shrub is a fruit and vinegar syrup that was originally made as a way to preserve fruit for the winter. 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 ...

Peach Tarte Tatin

Peach Tarte Tatin

Tarte tatin is an upside down tart that is typically made with apples. Using peaches instead of apples in this classic French dessert is a great change of pace and makes this tart perfect for the summer. I used a mixture of white and yellow peaches, so you can use either type when you make your tart. The peaches do not need to be peeled ... Read More »

There are thousands of varieties of peaches out there, and the most common are yellow-fleshed, slightly fuzzy fruits that are round and resemble other stone fruits, like nectarines. There is a huge variety of size, shape and flavor that peaches can have, however, and it is becoming more and more common to see multiple peach varieties at grocery stores that might previously have only been ...

Peach and Strawberry Cobbler

Peach and Strawberry Cobbler

I like to think of this Peach and Strawberry Cobbler as my end-of-summer cobbler. This particular batch of cobbler was baked with beautiful fresh strawberries and a mix of perfectly ripe yellow and white peaches. The strawberries are probably some of the last top-notch berries I’ll get this season – hence the end-of-summer feeling to the dessert. It also helps that the colors in the ... Read More »

Peach Crumble Pie

Peaches and Cream Pie

Peaches and cream is a great flavor combination, no matter what type of cream you’re using. My grandmother was fond of serving peaches and ricotta or cottage cheese with a little sugar on top. I like peaches and ice cream or cream anglaise. I also quite like this Peach Crumble Pie, where the peaches are suspended in a lightly sweetened custard made with sour cream. ... Read More »
