We love to go to our local Eastside/Westside Market and buy a lug of peaches when they have the mouth watering juicy peaches.  The only problem is trying to get through that whole lug before they are too ripe.  Here are some peach recipes they include when you purchase a lug.  They all sound delicious. 

The big tip is that you do not have to peel peaches for COOKED recipes!

Easy Kansas Cobbler
4 cups unpeeled sliced peaches
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp almond extract
1/2 cup margarine, melted
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
3/4 cup milk

In a bowl, gently toss peaches, 1 cup of sugar and extract.  Set aside.  Pour melted margarine into an 8x8 inch pan.  In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and 1/2 cup sugar.  Stir in milk and mix well.  Pour evenly over margarine.  Top with peach mixture.  Bake at 350 degrees F for 50-55 minutes.  Serve warm with ice cream.

Peach Salsa
2 cups peaches, peeled & chopped
1 cup red onion, chopped
4 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
2 Tbsp jalapeno pepper, chopped
2 Tbsp sugar

Mix and serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to use.

Peach Smoothie
1 peach, sliced
1 cup vanilla or plain yogurt
2 cups ice

Mix in an electric blender until smooth.

Peach Enchiladas
2 (8 oz) tubes of crescent rolls
2 sticks of butter
1 1/2 cups of sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
4 firm, ripe peaches, quartered
1 (12 oz) can Mountain Dew

Melt butter and add sugar and cinnamon.  Unroll crescent dough and place one quarter peach on each roll.  Roll dough around peach from large side to small tab.  Place in a 9x13 inch pan.  Pour butter mixture over rolls and then pour Mountain Dew on top of butter.  Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes.
