Just Peachy! What to Make with All Those Peaches ~ Link Up Love


"Mr. Hale had been peeling a peach for his wife; and, cutting off a small piece for himself, he said: 'If I had any prejudices, the gift of such delicious fruit as this would melt them all away."
~ Elizabeth Gaskell, North & South


Today we are featuring five posts from our 13th edition of "The Art of Home-Making Mondays" link up. They all concern that luscious fruit which we call the "peach". My taste buds were tantalized by all of these seasonal recipes! If you need some ideas, here is what you can make with them:


If you are interested in saving some sweetness for the fall and winter months, Angi at A Return to Simplicity shares how to freeze and how to dehydrate your peaches.


She also gives us her mouth-watering recipe for peach and praline pie! If you were to add some home-made vanilla ice-cream to this, it would be a taste of heaven...


Homesteading on Grace teaches us how to make a peach cobbler (whole foods style)! I think the picture says it all!


Peaches aren't just for eating! Heather at My Overflowing Cup shares how to make a peach flavored simple syrup. Doesn't it look refreshing?


And lastly, we are going to include a post from the earlier week, how to can peaches for yogurt (by Making Our Sustainable Life) since it looked so delicious and I loved the concept!




After reading these recipes, I hope you take advantage of the lovely peach while she is in season and in her best advantage!  You will find some pretty labels for your peach related projects here (shown above). Thank you ladies for sharing your wisdom with us! I invite you all to join us this upcoming week at the Art of Home-Making Mondays

  1. Oh, so much peachy fun! Thanks for using my post as one of your features! Peaches and cherries are my favorite fruits and I could eat them every day, so learning how to can them, freeze them and dehydrate them is wonderful information. Have a wonderful weekend!

  6. My mother would love this. She loves peaches. They are farmed near us. I remember her always wanting to go and buy fresh peaches at the farmers market! She wasn't a canner but she would try to get some for her freezer. Thanks for sharing this. And thanks so much for coming by and leaving a sweet comment. Hope your weekend is Blessed.

    1. How wonderful to have peaches farmed nearby! That means fresh and local, the best kind of fruit! Frozen peaches are my favorite way to preserve them for cobblers :)

  8. What a delicious post. Peaches are a favorite fruit around our house, and cobblers and fried peach pies are a summer tradition. Our two peach trees died several years ago, but I do want to replace them soon. Thank you for another lovely post.

  9. Peaches have to be shipped to us in the Northland, but oh my, they are so good. There are roadside stands that have peaches a million times better than what we can get at the grocery store(no exaggeration!). I imagine they are pretty close to "fresh, tree ripened" tasting. We recently bought a bag & had enough for eating some fresh and making a pie. Unbelievably good. We have apples everywhere in the fall but they just can't compare to peaches!

    1. I agree! And the roadside stands are always better. I really can't buy fruit at a grocery store anymore... It never has that fresh taste that you crave... Farmers markers, stands and orchards are the way to go when in season. Thanks for taking the time to share today! :)

  10. Oh yum! All of those peaches have my mouth watering :) I just bought some peaches and look forward to enjoying them fresh and in sweet desserts - and maybe making some peach jam.

    Have a wonderful week, dear friend!

  13. Great post. I just dehydrated a bunch of peaches we picked a couple weeks ago and made some into yummy fruit leathers. My son loves taking them to school as a snack.

    Congrats on being chosen as a featured post on this week’s Wildcrafting Wednesdays! I hope you'll join us again and share more of your awesome posts.
