    Boy, I sure do miss my old Elberta peach tree! Big, warm peaches, right off the tree with the juice dripping down to your elbow. A little bite of heaven to be sure! - 7/11/2010   10:17:50 PM

    Guys: if you use canned, RINSE THEM.. that is where most of the sugar is from . I am a certified consultant in nutrition. Plain yogurt works well (like peaches and cream)with peaches and you get some added calcium to boot. A splash of mini chocolate chips over it, will give you an excellent snack. And freezing drained fruit is always a nice snack in the summer! gigi - 7/11/2010   5:04:22 PM

    Our dietitian told us to rinse the peaches that come in the can, even the low sugar kind. I just put them in a wire mesh strainer. This comes in handy when you want to each peaches in the winter time. - 7/8/2010   10:17:37 PM

    Red wine, slice fresh peaches into it, add some sugar or splenda or such, leave in fridge a couple of hours, eat. I don't drink the wine, but you could, it will be like a light sangria. You can do the same with rose or white, but I prefer the red. French summer peach recipe. - 7/8/2010   3:46:25 AM

    I make peach jam at the end of season, that is seasoned with cinnimon. After several years I have it down pat how to purposely flop a batch and we heat it up and pour it over vanilla ice cream, and it tastes just like peach cobbler pie. Yum! all my friends always want a jar. - 7/8/2010   12:13:43 AM

    I am so going to have to try out the recipes for the muffins, the salsa and the pancakes - my mouth is watering as I sit here thinking about them! The muffins sound great formy DH (type 2 diabetes).
    If I had a good source of fresh peaches, I think I'd try halved, stoned and grilled with some bacon and some cheese (probably either feta or mild goat's) on top. - 7/7/2010   7:28:31 PM

    My favorite fresh peach recipe: peel, slice, eat. That's the best way to enjoy a fresh peach from the Farmers' Market! My second favorite way is a peach galette that combines peaches and blueberries. And when they finally come in season this year, I'm going to try that method mentioned below, with the feta melted in the center.

    In the early eighties most all canned fruit was in heavy syrup. My daughter, age five, was able to read at the time. We requested that she go to the cellar pantry and bring up a can of peaches. She arrived in the kitchen, dramatically out of breath, and exclaimed, "They weren't kidding when they said "heavy" syrup!" - 7/7/2010   9:33:56 AM

    Fresh peaches are definitely best but if you can't find any, Del Monte makes canned peaches with no sugar added. - 7/7/2010   5:00:54 AM

    Fresh peaches, cut in half, with a tsp of feta cheese sprinkled over each half. Heat until the feta is melty. Mmmmm. Salty and sweet and low cal. - 7/7/2010   5:00:02 AM

    We pick peaches with our grandchildren every season. It is a grand day with peach juice running down our chins as we pick. Glad to see all the great recipies. I will need them in a few weeks. Flutter - 7/6/2010   10:06:45 PM

    Why all the canned peach recipes? Even if it's extra light syrup, it's still additional sugar AND the peaches are already super soft. I like a little more texture to my peaches. I'll try some of these, but with fresh peaches. - 7/6/2010   8:27:20 PM

    I'd love to be able to make the perfect peach cobbler! My favorite is with the crush covering the top and just enough of the sauce! Not the bready kind! - 7/6/2010   6:54:07 PM

    What a terrible tease! It's still a month or so until peaches are ripe here and I like to see the tree they come off. Peach pancakes sound perfect and are going into my recipe box. - 7/6/2010   4:47:39 PM

    We grilled for the 4th and I put a peach on the grill with just a little olive oil (pit removed and sliced in half), it was good! It was the first time I had grilled a peach too. I will be doing that again! - 7/6/2010   10:29:12 AM
