      Peachy Recipes
        
          You wouldn't believe all the delicious ways to eat a
          peach.  Over the years we have collected our  
          favorite peach recipes and preparation tips.  We  
          hope you enjoy them as much as we have.

   
Preparation Tips:

         
To keep peaches from turning dark when cut,
          make a mixture of vinegar and salt water to cut
          them into.  Approximate proportions are 1/4 cup 
          white vinegar & 1 teaspoon salt, to 2 quarts water. 
          Let peaches (or apples) drop into water mixture as you cut them up, periodically dipping them out
          with a slotted spoon and placing them in a seive or colander to drain.  This does not effect the taste,
          but will keep your fruit looking good, whether you are serving it fresh, cooking with it, canning, or
          freezing.  This is a great inexpensive substitute for Fruit Fresh and  similar products.
