I love the taste of fresh peaches, especially old fashioned home canned peaches, but I’m a little too lazy for that, so I’ll have to be content enjoying them while they’re in season.
A friend gave us a big bag of delicious ripe peaches and I had to come up with ways to use them fast. So, I tried peach upside down cake. Think pineapple upside down cake with peaches instead of pineapple. I used this recipe, a dressed up cake mix…..love that, it was so good and pretty to look at. I added some nuts I had on hand to use them up.
Have you ever made peach salsa? I tried it with fish tacos, a recipe that came from a grocery store handout.
*to make the peach salsa mix up, 2 large ripe, peeled, chopped peaches
1/4 c minced red bell pepper
1T fresh or 1 t.dried cilantro
the juice of 1 fresh squeezed lime
chopped onion and jalapeno, optional
*for the fish , sprinkle a mixture of 1 t chili powder, 1/2 t ground cumin and 1/4 t garlic powder, and some salt over 1 lb. tilapia filets. This recipe calls for steaming the fish but I cooked it in a pan with a little olive oil.
I’m adding this post to Foodie Friday over at Designs by Gollum. You’ll finds lots more recipes there.
