You have shared some deliscious recipes. And I want to say thank you!
These are the best peaches I have ever ordered. And the recipes are delicious. Made the peach bread and it was a HIT!!
Hey Sophia! The number of peaches will vary throughout the season. If you are using early peaches, they tend to be smaller, while the later varieties are much bigger. We suggest pureeing a small number then adding a peach at a time until you reach the desired 2 1/4 cups.
As always delicious peaches and pecans. Just made peach bread, substituted coconut oil for shortening and maple syrup for half of sugar. Delicious!
About how many pureed peaches equal 2 1/4 cups.
Thanks. Love the peaches.
