What to Look for When Buying Peaches:

Avoid spots or bruises on peaches. If ripe they should yield slightly when pressed. Nectarines have the same qualities with smooth outer skin.

Peach Storage Tips:

When ripe store in fridge. To ripen, leave out at room temperature.

How to Cook with Peaches:

Blanch peaches to remove skin by placing in boiling water for 2 minutes and then placing in cold water. This will cause the skin to peel right off. Bake in fruit dishes, freeze, can, dry or eat as is.

Peach Nutrition Facts:

One medium peach is one serving. It is full of Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, potassium, magnesium, calcium and iron.
