What to do w/ dry, mealy white peaches??

Recommended Posts

I just bought them from Costco the other day and they are just gross. I am so frustrated, it's not cheap buying bulk produce but usually worth it for my large family.


Would cobbler or pies be good even w/mealy fruit? I don't want to throw them out, I spent almost $9 for the box!


However, the chickens DO love them!!

Gross! I might try a cobbler though before I chuck them. Betty Crocker cookbook is the one I usually use. I had a whole container of sour grapes one time from Costco. Boy, was I bummed and there isn't a grape cobbler that I know of! :o)


You can do grape pies! Think upstate NY's wine/vineyard area. Lots of grapes. Lots of grape pies. Very tasty!

Try this with some of them.


And, for others, I'd mix them with other fresh fruits of the season (berries, cooking apples) into a fruit crisp. Mix cut up fruit (about 8 cups total) with the juice of a fresh lemon and some sugar (1/2 - 1 cup). Pour into a baking pan. Make a crumble topping using 1 cup of all purpose flour, 1 cup sugar, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg. You might bump up the cinn. and nutmeg by 1/4 tsp. each to make up for the tasteless peaches...depends on how much other fruit you mix in. Toss this in a food processor if you have one, or a large bowl. Mix or cut in 1 stick of cold cubed butter until your mix gets crumbly like cottage cheese. Then add in 1 cup of finely chopped almonds. Mix together and sprinkle over fruit. Bake at 350° for about 50 minutes.


If there's any way you can buy from a farmers' market, you'll be less likely to end up with mealy fruit. That is the result of having to be picked green so that it can ship, and of being cold stored in the interim. Ick!
