Now, if you suddenly find yourself buying more peaches than necessary, then do not wait for them to rot. There are various ways and recipes you can do with lots of peaches! 

The first one is to preserve them or make delicious peach jams that you can store in your pantry all year round. Another way is to make sweet peach desserts such as jellies, cobblers, and peach crumbles. A peach ice cream sounds delightful as well! You can also transform your peaches into a warm soup during a rainy day. And if you want to heighten the sweetness of peaches, you can always grill them to caramelize its sugars then mix it into your favorite salads. You can also poach peaches by cooking them along with an herb-infused syrup. You can also bake or sauté to make a delicious peach snack or side dish.

What can you do with unripe peaches?

There may be instances where you are craving for some peaches but when you go to the market, most of the available peaches left are unripe ones. You have two options here: you can wait for them to ripen or make the most out of these unripe peaches. If you choose the latter one, then you are in for a treat because cooking peaches can actually enhance its sweetness and sourness which adds that needed flavor to your dishes! Moreover, cooking helps soften the fruit which makes it more edible and easier to eat. One of the most common ways to cook unripe peaches is by poaching. This method simply requires you to cover the fruit with liquid and simmer until soft. Any liquid (or you can simply use water) can be used for poaching. And if you want to add some extra flavor, you can always mix in some wine of syrup. Some more ways you can make the most out of unripe peaches is by making your own homemade peach coleslaw and peach chips!
