I also peeled, pitted, and chopped up 4 cups of peaches for salsa. If my tomatoes ever ripen. I put them in the freezer for now.
Easy Peasy Peach Fruit Roll Ups
Take the peach skins left over from the whole process and puree along with some of the honey syrup leftover from the Honey Spiced Peaches. Pour onto a cookie sheet covered in saran wrap. Put in oven or dehydrator at 170 for 3 hours. Flip over for another hour.

1 12 oz can of evaporated milk

Mix and pour into the ice cream maker and let her rip.
In the middle of all that, don't forget to take a break and have peaches and cream on the porch.
While on the porch partake in the phox and peaches and cream hollyhocks.
I hope you find some of the recipes useful. They are tried and true for me. Is there anything you like to make with peaches? Hope you had a great weekend.
