Peaches

When to pick peaches
Pick peaches when they come away from the tree easily. They should give slightly if squeezed, and often have a pinkish blush and a sweet fragrance when ripe.

Eat and store ripe peaches
Eat when slightly soft, at room temperature. Depending on when they are picked, they will keep up for 5 days at room temperature.

How to preserve peaches
Peaches can be sliced and dried, as well as used in all kinds of jams and jellies, savory chutneys, and preserves. They have low pectin content, so crack the stones open and use the kernels to help settling, as with apricots.

Freezing peaches
Pit, slice, and open freeze on trays, as a cooked or uncooked puree, as a freezer jam, or blanched or poached in sugar syrup.
