Peaches (Stage One)

We will be introducing fruit in about a week or two and decided to start with peaches! Mostly because we have them.

I have honestly found that the most amazing peaches in our area can be found at Sams Club. We have yet to get a bad peach.

You might consider buying organic when it comes to peaches. Peaches are one of the Dirty Dozen, which is a list compiled by EGW of the foods most commonly found to contain pesticide residue.

DIRECTIONS
Scrub fruit well and cut an "X" into one side
Place fruit in sauce pan with 1 inch of water
Bring to a boil and steam until tender (a knife slid in and out easily)
Allow to cool, peel, pit & slice
Place in food processor and puree until smooth. Use the left over cooking water to thin if needed

I did not need to use any type of liquid to thin further. The peaches pureed very well without it.

2 peaches gave me 14 one ounce cubes.
