Delicious This Week: Organic Yellow Peaches

By Jennifer Cheng, September 4, 2011  |  Meet the Blogger  |  More Posts by Jennifer Cheng
I’m peachy keen on organic yellow peaches! Soft and fuzzy with a deep red blush, yellow peaches are just gorgeous on the outside and luscious and sweet on the inside. The mere mention of organic yellow peaches makes my mouth water, especially when I start thinking of all the ways I could use them in recipes. I love peaches as they are for an easy portable snack so I know I’ll need to make an effort to buy extra and save some for cooking and baking (and freezing for later)! But what makes organic yellow peaches extra awesome? Our organic peaches meet stringent USDA organic standards and are grown without the use of toxic and persistent pesticides. The next time you’re in one of our stores, ask any team member for a sample. Check out these ways you can use organic yellow peaches in recipes: I can’t resist throwing in a few of the simple ways I incorporate a peach each day:
  • Sip a Peach Lassi made of ripe peaches blended with tart yogurt and a dash of cardamom.
  • For a quick and impressive appetizer, roll peaches, rosemary and goat cheese in puff pastry and bake until golden and crispy.
  • Cook ripe peaches down in a skillet with lemon zest, cinnamon and pure cane sugar for a quick and easy refrigerator jam or dessert topping.
  • Tangy goat or feta cheese topped with juicy peaches and honey makes a perfect cheese course or dessert.
Fun Fact: The Peach Melba was invented in the 19th century at the Savoy Hotel in London to honor the Australian soprano, Nellie Melba. Combine peaches and raspberries to make a sauce for ice cream in the style of this classic dessert and you’ll find yourself singing its praises! Organic yellow peaches are featured in our stores now, so be sure to pick some up before the season ends. Be a peach and share your favorite ways to enjoy peaches by leaving a comment below!

The peaches this year are the best that I can remember for some years now. I have been buying them nearly everyday. I have them in my yogurt for lunch, I've been making peach salsa with grilled chicken AND just eating them as a snack! I have yet to purchase one mealy peach so far!!!

@Ann & Milt Mmm peaches! Since Whole Foods supports buying local, the orchards will be different region to region. The best way to get the most accurate response to this question is to reach out to your local community store. I've copied the link to identify your store contact information below. Don't forget about our recipes section on the website for great peach ideas. :) http://wholefoodsmarket.com/stores/
