4 Favourite Peach Recipes for Summer

Baking with Peaches: 4 Favourite Summer Recipes

Molasses and peaches are a beautiful pairing for summer.

Summer peaches are one of my favourite fruits. Tender and juicy, they are one of the true flavours of summer.

You might be surprised to discover how beautifully peaches and molasses go together. Molasses helps to keep peach desserts from being too sweet and it doesn’t overpower the flavour of this lovely golden fruit.

How to skin peaches:

  • Bring a pot of water to the boil. Slice a small “X” in the bottom of each peach and drop into the boiling water for 30 seconds.
  • Remove from the water with a slotted spoon and when cool enough to handle slide off the skins.
