Hi, everyone! This year we are fortunate enough to have LOTS of big beautiful peaches, but they are ripening fast and the bees and wasps and squirrels have noticed them. This means that I need to get them in and processed fast. I have made 3 pies, and frozen some for pies for later.
Some are drying in the dehydrator. I am thinking about making jam now with the rest; last year I made a jalapeño peach jam that was great. The jam is also nice because it can be a low-key gift for hostesses. I just retired Thursday, so I have to time to mess around with the peeling, etc.

Does anyone have any other ideas for peach combos, or peach preservation in general? I was thinking about trying a rhubarb/peach jam or chutney but some in my family feel that it would be an abomination.

Thanks for any ideas or advice!
