Did you know that peaches are rich in many vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin A, C, K, E, manganese, niacin, potassium, copper and fiber?
Peaches also have small amounts of magnesium, phosphorus, iron, and some B vitamins. They’re also packed with antioxidants that are beneficial plant compounds to combat oxidative damage and help protect your body against aging and disease. The fresher the fruit, the more antioxidants it contains. Sounds like the perfect sweet treat to us. Stop in and stock up. See you on the farm.
6 WHFF peaches
3 cups sugar
2 Tbsp. Chopped ginger
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
¼ tsp. salt
Place peaches in large pot of boiling water for 1 min; rinse in cold water and peel. Remove pits and cut into wedges (about 6 cups). Transfer to the bowl of a food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped. In a medium stainless steel saucepan, combine peaches, sugar, ginger, lemon juice, and salt. Simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 30 minutes. Ladle into Mason Jars and cool. Refrigerate overnight. Store in refrigerator for up to 1 month.
