Peach season is upon us! If you are like me, you want to enjoy that fresh peach flavor all year long. There’s one problem though, they get ripe – fast! Most people enjoy canning, and believe me, I’ve tried. I’ve gone to classes, watched tutorials, read the blogs, the books, and taken advice from the grandma next door. I even canned once, but I got so terrified that I did it wrong and I would send my entire family to the hospital from food poisoning that I dumped it out. I’ve tried dehydrating into fruit leather too, which was much easier to do, but for the amount of time you put into it, it sure disappears fast. My solution? FREEZING. Freezing is an excellent way to preserve your peaches with minimal nutritional and flavor loss. I prefer to peel my peaches, but you don’t even have to. All you have to do is wash, cut, peel if preferred, and lay them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper in a single layer. Pop the peaches in the freezer for an hour or two, then transfer to a freezer bag, and you’re done! I mostly use these frozen peaches for smoothies (my favorite is frozen fruit, Red Barn apple juice, and a handful of spinach) but I wanted to share two other quick and delicious ways to use those frozen peaches. I promise it will please the masses!
This salad is great for a neighborhood BBQ! The mixture of apples, caramel and chocolate are delicious. You better make extra, because you won't be taking any of this home with you.
For today's recipe tip, I wanted to suggest trying cherries or cranberries in your favorite raisin recipes. Cherries are high in antioxidants and add a powerful flavor punch to jazz up any old recipe you have on hand! Red Barn dried cherries are also great in oatmeal, cookies, and home made granola recipes.
Here at the Red Barn we are always trying our products in different recipes or adapting recipes to fit our products. We have found that just oat in the no bake cookies can be improved upon by adding 5 other grains using our 6 grain rolled mix.
