Some favorite recipes from Bennett Orchards...


In our experience the best results are obtained by using Fruit Fresh ® which is available at local grocery stores. Follow directions on the label. Sliced or halved peeled peaches freeze well in ziplock freezer bags. Nectarines do not need to be peeled before freezing.


For ease of preparation, we recommend using our own BENNETT ORCHARDS OLD FASHIONED PEACH COBBLER MIX, which may also be used to make delicious peach shortcake. Simply follow the directions on the package. This mix is available at our orchard location.


4 cups sliced fresh peaches
1/2 cup water
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon butter
9" baked pie shell

Crush enough peaches to make one cup, leaving rest to slice. Combine crushed peaches with water. sugar and cornstarch. Cook until clear (2-3 minutes) stirring occasionally. Add butter, cool slightly. Fill baked pie shell with sliced peaches. Pour glaze mix­ture over peaches. Chill at least two hours.


Peel and slice large peaches into halves. Baste with a mixture of melted margarine and cinnamon. Grill approximately 3 - 5 minutes on each side or until done. Do not overcook. These are delicious with grilled pork chops or chicken.
