Ripe peaches may be processed quickly and easily into a delightful puree in a food processor. Use peach purée in beverages, soups, stews, or desserts.

Several of the recipes called for peach puree. This may seem obvious to those of us home cooks and skilled chefs, but I’m sure there are some aspiring home cooks out there who may not be aware of how to puree vegetables, fruits, etc. So I made the decision to make a little post on this puree.

The simplicity of purees allows you to simply mix the fruit until it is liquid. This peach purée recipe does not include straining. I decided to keep it just as it came out of the food processor. I kept my peach purée in mason jars. The refrigerator is the ideal place to keep it for up to a week. Stay tuned because I have a couple dishes with peach purée in them that I’ll be posting soon!
