Around the middle of August every year we start getting shipments of peaches from a Colorado Orchard in Palisade, and it’s one of my favorite times of year. I just LOVE the fresh peaches that come from the orchard, they are absolutely the best. Not to bash the peach state of Georgia, and I’ve had Georgia peaches a few times when I’ve been out there visiting family, and though Georgia peaches are good, these are even better!
I now get 6 half bushels of peaches every summer, and I try to find a myriad of ways to use the peaches. A few of the standbys I make are peach cobblers, peach french toast, cinnamon macaroon peaches, peach fritters, and so many more. I spend several days during this time canning the peaches in slices, halves, jam, compote, puree (for homemade peach ice cream), and one of our family’s favorites… Mango-Peach Salsa (I add Mangoes to it because the combination is great and you can stretch it into more!). Here is the prized Mango Peach Salsa recipe, enjoy! And try not to eat it all at once!
This recipe, and 499 others, can be found in our cookbook “Rocky Mountain Lodge & Cabins’ MORE Favorites Recipes” which can be purchased at our Gift Shop.
