Have to say this was one of the easier fruits to find recipes for. It seems peaches and chicken is a popular thing, didn't know that? I think I will try the jam, as that sounds so good.

Your peaches sound watery. Way back in Orange, a country town 4 hours drive from Sydney, I grew Peach in our backyard. I did not know what to do with the plentiful fruits. I ended up sharing them with neighbours and birds. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a nice comment.

Oh those southern Ontario peaches!! I remember them. Marvelous. The only thing that rivals them (but in a different category I suppose), are the Big Boy tomatoes

Now here is my heart - grew up on a southern Ontario peach farm - tons of stories to tell about that.

Thanks again for all the great recipes.

I love peaches too. I just wish the smell didn't remind me of late summer. I think they should come earlier in the year. Now I have a hankering for peach cobbler.

I love peaches. We always wait until the B.C. peaches are out and then we are in seventh heaven. Thanks for all those recipes.

Peaches are the only fruit I've ever bottled. We had a very prolific tree and it is easy to do. We're some time away from peaches (assuming it doesn't get cold again and freeze the blossoms), but they do sound yummy.

By the way, many of Jeff Foxworthy's Canada jokes would work equally well in northern Utah.
