Good morning Sue,
I just checked the paper yesterday to see if peaches had arrived at the farmers market and didn't see where they have. At the store they are cold & hard so it's very difficult to pick out good ones. So rats, unless I can find some good ones I'll be out this week.
Shall we put our "new" recipes we've tried here? Any particular type peaches or recipes you're looking for? (lol, I know dumb, and just kidding)
I know, we were going so strong there at the first, I miss all the people experimenting, it was so much fun. I'll still find something, even it's canned peaches. (ewww)
Thank-you for your effort. I think you're going to have to get out the cattle prod!
: ^ )
Jill new to you recipes go right here, last challenge I think there were only 4 participants...no reason not to park them right here.
If there ends up being a huge influx of tried & trues, we can make a thread for them but there wasn't many over the last two weeks.
Take those hard peaches and put them in a paper bag, they'll ripen in a day or so. You can also use peach jam, frozen peaches, peach nectar, peach jello, peach pie filling or dried peaches.
Heck even those nasty gummy peaches if you like, LOL.
Lol, you took me seriously Sue, you should know better. We, at least should, know by now that anything with the word peaches in it will count.
I have tried putting them in a bag but it's still not the same and even if they ripen up semi-nicely I have a heck of a time even getting them off the pits. I don't understand, am I doing something wrong?
az_jillLol, you took me seriously Sue, you should know better
I'm too tired to know better this week, it's county fair week! I need rollerskates to catch myself. LOL
If they're not coming off the pits nicely - they're not 'freestone' peaches. It's the variety that makes a difference. I also buy them based on smell....if it don't smell like a peach, hard or soft....I don't buy it.
What a Goodie. A new one just landed on my Lap ! I'll get er done . Sue, Last week was slow, going bck to weekly posts maybe better.

Enjoying every Minute.
Yeah, the recipe posts sure did dwindle. I'm not very original so most new things I try come from cookbooks, so that pretty much leaves me out. But I do like reading what others have tried.

That's okay! I don't care where you get the recipe from and if you try a new recipe but don't want to type out the recipe...just come tell us about it.
I tried this Peach Dessert this week and got so many OMG who made this and I want the recipe!. It is pretty as well as soooo good. Too easy. Here we go:
3/4 cup sugar
2 T cornstarch
1 cup water
2 TBSP corn syrup
1 box (3.4oz) orange jello
1 angel food cake ( i think it was 10.5 oz) loaf or round
1 8 oz cream cheese soft
2/3 cup confectioners sugar
2 TBSP milk
1 8 oz carton cool whip or whipped topping soft
sliced/ fresh peaches (actually I chopped mine in small pcs for easy eating) Enough to cover the cake.
Combine sugar and cornstarch then stir in water and corn syrup until smooth. Bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 1 to 2 min. til thickened. Remove from heat and stir in jello til dissolved . Set aside to cool (does not have to be cold)
Cut the angel food cake in slices or pcs ( next time I will cut in pcs) and line in 9x13 ungreased dish.. Set aside.
In a large bowl beat cream cheese and confectioners sugar til smooth. Add milk and mix in....
Now set aside 1/3 cup of whipped topping for garnish. Fold remaining whipped topping into above cream cheese mixture.. Spread this mixture evenly over cake. Top with fresh peaches. Pour jello mixture over peaches. Cover and refrig. Before serving cut in squares and put a little dollop of whipped topping on each square .
This is so pretty and if you are serving it to guest put a sprig of greenery on the corner just for added color.
Saying all of this . is this clear as mud?
You will not be disappointed in this recipe. Sounds like alot to do but its tooooo easy. I am making this again for Sunday dinner at church.
I used fresh peaches from the farmers market.
I forgot to mention you can use reduced fat cream cheese , whipped topping and fat free milk. I used regular tho. I think the taste would be the same. Your choice.
Woot woot - look at you go!
Wow Echo, that looks delicious and fairly healthy for you, especially as desserts go.
Thank-you much for sharing the recipe & your review with us.
My coworker goes over to Eastern Washington every other weekend. I had him bring me back a box of peaches last weekend. They are so nummy! We have one everyday with a touch of Truvia on them. :) Will have to check out the recipes you all come up with! :)

I haven't participated yet, but since I am a peach lover, I decided to add a recipe. Although, I have had this recipe book quite a few years, Bought it at Keepsake Candles, in Bartlesville, Ok. Since someone quoted a Will Rogers quote, it reminded me of this book. "Cookin' with Will Rogers" It includes his recipes along with family and friends, also a lot of his sayings. I'll try to include one of them at the end. I definitely have not tried it yet. I've only made one recipe out of this book, Pineapple pie, and I took it to a family reunion, and got lots of compliments.
PEACHES AND BERRIES CRUMBLE
1 (16-oz). pkg. frozen sliced peaches
1 cup frozen cranberries
1 cup frozen blackberries
3 TBSP. cornstarch (see comment below)
1/4 tsp. almond extract
1 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup water
In a large saucepan, combine 1 cup sugar and cornstarch. Add water, mix well, bring to a boil, stirring constantly; stir until thickened. Stir in fruit; return to a boil. Remove saucepan from heat, stir in almond mix. Pour into ungreased 1 and 1/2 quart baking dish. In medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, butter and milk. Mix well. Drop mixture by spoonfuls over hot fruit. Bake at 400 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes.
Comments: In typing the recipe, I noticed that sugar is used twice. 1 cup with the cornstarch, and later 1/2 cup in the mixture that goes on top, so I am assuming they left out the first cup of sugar in the recipe.
