Here’s how to make peach puree! It’s quick and simple to whip up with a blender or food processor, and you can use fresh or frozen peaches.
- 3 large ripe peaches (or 1 pound frozen peaches, thawed)*
- Peel the peaches: Start a medium saucepan of water to boil. Once boiling, place the peaches into the boiling water for 45 seconds. Remove the peaches with a slotted spoon and place them in a large bowl of ice water. After about a minute or so when the peaches are cool enough to handle, use a paring knife to make a small cut to puncture the skin. Then use your fingers to pull off the skin in sheets.
- Remove the pits: Slice each peach in half and use your fingers to pull out the pits.
- Blend: Puree the peaches in a food processor or blender until a smooth puree forms. Taste and if your peaches aren’t perfectly ripe and sweet, add a little sugar, honey or maple syrup, then blend again. Refrigerate for up to 1 week, or freeze for longer storage.
*If you’re planning to use the peach puree as a dessert topping or for pancakes or waffles, blend in 1 tablespoon sugar, maple syrup or honey. Then taste and add more sweetener to taste.
