Crate of Peaches, What to do with

JudiAU | Sep 23, 2002 07:30 PM

For reasons I still don't understand, I bought a box/crate of end of season, smallish, delicous peaches yesterday at the Hollywood Farmer's Market. Sometimes a deal is a deal is a deal. $16

My usual solution is to make freezer pie but my freezer isn't big enough to deal with the bounty. After I finish five pies I project I will still have 10-15 pounds left. (For the record, the Pie and Pastry Bible's peach pie is superb.) Plus, I already have five mini pies in there already.

Suggestions? I might give in and do some canning but I have pretty vague memories of the process and would probably have to expend a fair amount of effort to relearn it.

I am having a cocktail party on Friday. Thoughts?

I tried to find some infused vodka/rum/wine recipes but I only found vin de peche recipes made with peach leaves.
