Gotcha......

My guys like when I dice them up with a tiny bit of brown sugar and make little tarts with them. (the brown sugar forms a "caramel" with the peach juice/sugars)

It is really easy..just use pre-fab croissant dough, fill, press the edges to seal, brush a little butter across the top to brown and bake until the house smells amazing. (I have a pampered chef tart press that makes it quicker )

I do this with apples, pumpkin, berries...you name it. If you have the time there are lots of recipes for the dough... I just like simple.

stew em

Cut them up into quarters or eights... put a little bit of apple juice in the pan... turn the stove on low... cap the pan... and let them SLOW cook.

Add sugar, apple pie spice, and nutmeg... just a dab of the spices.

Once they are completely softened... run them thru your food processor.

Makes great "sauce" and you can freeze it to put in muffins or breads.

Make peach muffins, that is what I do with most of my fruit going bad. Use a blue berry muffin recipe. I cut the fruit and mix it with the sugar and let that sit over night then in the morning blend the fruit/sugar mixture then make the muffins making them that way means no lumps of fruit, texture is a big deal.

Make applesauce and add it in with the applesauce? Sounds good to me!
