Millions of Peaches, Peaches for me...

I like to do things big.

So when my church group sent around a sign up for a group peach order-- I joined in.  The peaches were delivered today.  I bought 15 lbs. of peaches.  What looked good on paper is now staring me in the face on my kitchen counter.

I love peaches.  No one else does.  I now have quite a few pounds to deal with.

I'm calling out to all of you creative people...

What can I make with my peaches? 

Any good recipes out there?

Peach cobbler...YUM! My favorite! I don't have a recipe though but if I can get my grandmas I'll send it to you...It's the best!

Slice and freeze some (lay them out on pans to freeze so they won't stick together, then put in a ziploc). They're good in smoothies (if you like those) or you can use them in cobbler or something later. I also have some canning recipes if you want some, but my comment is already long.

How about raspberry peach freezer jam... It's pink, they won't know the peaches are in there. I use the recipe in the sure jell and it's pretty good.

Millions of peaches, peaches for me, millions of peaches, peaches for free! Hmmm....that's a lot of peaches. Freezer jam is easy and you have a rockin' fruit pie recipe, if I do recall. Have you considered making one of your kid's a Halloween costume with them? Just a thought.

Mike bought THE BIGGEST box of peaches and I canned some - found out that is a TON of work. Then I made the cake from "the pionner woman cooks" - her strawberry shortcake: http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2009/05/strawberry-shortcakecake/ but baked in a 9 by 13 pan and topped it with 6 or 7 chopped up peaches and the icing - SOOOOOOOOOOOOO good!! Glad you got some ideas. I will have to try your pie recipe. I bought 20 lbs., yes 20 lbs. of blueberries this spring and could have used it then.

You totally forgot about peaches and cream ... I use heavy whipping cream 'cause half and half is just not right! I hope you have a few left in the freezer ... get them out and drizzle with a lot of sugar. Let them rest in the fridge then get them out and add the heavy whipping cream. Enjoy!!!
