Forums General Chit-Chat My kitchen smells like peaches

Donator Posted 3 years ago ( 2019/06/26 15:43:18 )
My kitchen smells pretty darn good right now. Just got done peeling a bunch of peaches. The store had a produce sale going and peaches were really cheap so I bought a few pounds of them. I'm going to attempt to make some jam with them.

I may slice and freeze some for eating in winter too. I love peaches but you just can't find good fresh peaches here in winter.

They really are. They're one of my favorite fruits.

Smells of elderflower over here, the bushes are in bloom and we usually make some elderflower cordial this time of year.
Also considering if it's time to pick the wild strawberries (smultron) since they are starting to become colorful.

If I gave you a bunch more, would you peel my peaches too? They're also on sale in the local supermarket here.

That sounds heavenly. I've always wanted to try the spiced peaches from the movie Holes... I should get on making that.

Why do you peel peaches tho? Peels are usually a good thing to eat.

@Monorea: they are, but not when you make jam.
@SirLionelNigelConrad: millions of peaches, peaches for you
millions of peaches, peaches for free

@Kira: spiced peaches do sound like they'd be good. Maybe I'll have to look for a recipe.
I was going to try to make spiced peach jam.

@Monorea: I love elderflower! It’s not super common in America but I would have it all the time in Britain.

Peaches are amazing. Have you ever had a Georgia peach? They really are the best.

@Totalanimefan: elderflower is amazing but so much work. You just need the flower leafs, but those flowers are tiny.

@Tuijp: What are you talking about? You simply snip the flower bundles about 50 of them, put them in a bowl with 3 sliced lemons. Then you dissolve 2kg of sugar in 2-2.5 litres of water, stir to dissolve the sugar and bring it up to boiling. Then you add some citric acid and a little bit of preservative pour it on the flower bundles and lemons. Put a lid on it and let it be somewhere cool for 3 days. Then filter it and you have elderflower cordial you can dilute and drink.
Nearly no work at all.

Why would you fiddle about with the flower leafs?

@Monorea: I always learned to only use the flower leafs

@Tuijp: Why tho? It doesnt make any difference in taste.

@Monorea: I don’t know. I never made it.
I let the elderflowers turn into berries for the birds.

You can make cordial from the berries too or you can pick them while green and pickle them.
