Peaches Galore

Creative uses for peaches

If you are lucky enough to have access to a peach tree, you
might quickly find yourself surrounded by more peaches than
you can realistically eat before they go bad. Here are a few
ways to cook with peaches that you might not have thought of.

One of nature's best accomplishments in the summer, peaches
are also quite healthy. A ripe peach is loaded with beta
carotene, potassium and a smattering of B vitamins. Further,
there are quite a few good folks who believe peaches are good
for lowering the cholesterol level in the blood, helping to
prevent cardiovascular diseases, anemia and renal diseases.

Most people tend to think of peach ice cream and peach pie,
but there are some healthier ways to eat peaches. Grilling
peaches brings out an incredible depth of flavor. You can cut
a peach in half and rub the cut sides with brown sugar before
grilling, or else top with whipped cream (homemade so you can
control the sweetness) and a few sliced almonds. A dash of
cinnamon or nutmeg adds a warm touch to this healthy dessert.

Some of the best uses for peaches aren't desserts at all.
Peach is a wonderful complement to the flavor of pork. You can
toss some diced peaches in a slow cooker along with a pork
loin roast and chopped onions. If you're using pork chops,
brown them in a pan and then brown the peaches in the same pan
along with some sliced red onions. Combine and bake until the
pork is cooked and the peaches are tender.

Peach salsa is the perfect accompaniment to any type of
grilled meat, especially chicken or fish. Combine the
following ingredients (amounts according to taste) and then
chill: diced fresh peaches, red onion, jalapeno, cilantro,
vinegar, and olive oil. You can even serve this peach salsa
with tortilla chips as a snack.

Add some sliced peaches to a green dinner salad. For example,
try some baby spinach, sliced peaches, sliced avocado,
pistachios, and a few chopped green onions. Drizzle with
sherry vinegar and a bit of olive oil to make a memorable
salad. You could even throw in leftover chicken or feta cheese
to make it more meal-like.

The important thing to remember is that with a little extra
planning and thought you can enjoy a huge variety of flavors
with your abundance of peaches.
