Summer is calling, which means it’s time for refreshing, cool and sweet recipes once more. When we think of the season, many of us consider mangoes as a go-to treat to enjoy. On top of enjoying them on their own, they are also a favorite as ingredients for desserts. But did you know that there is another fruit that tastes just as good? If you’ve never tried using peaches on your desserts, then you are definitely missing out on a lot.
Why you should #PeachUp your desserts?
Mangoes may be an amazing ingredient, but they can also be on the expensive side. Case in point, a kilo of the fruit—cored and peeled—can cost between P150 to P230 depending on the season. Moreover, you also have to consider their shelf life if you buy them fresh.
Peaches, on the other hand, have the same sweetness and crisp, plump texture as mangoes. What makes them a good alternative is that they are more economical than the other. For example, Jolly Peach Halves only cost between P100 to P120 for 825g can. On top of that, they also have a longer shelf life because they are packed fresh and ready for use, anytime, anywhere. Unopened cans of peaches can stay fresh for up to 3 years while opened cans can be used for seven days as long as they are placed in an air-tight container.
How to best enjoy peaches?
Peaches can definitely elevate your favorite desserts. You can use them as filling for pies, toppings for cakes and other pastries, on shakes, and even chilled sweets like Peach Tapioca . Because they have a plump texture, you can also easily tweak their consistency depending on your recipe. Chill them if you want them snappy or turn them soft by heating them to a boil.
Jolly Peach Halves can also be used for other dishes and drinks. Get the most out of every can by turning its juice into syrup, for example! Just boil it, add sugar as a thickener, and continuously stir until it reaches the desired consistency. Voila, you now have peach syrup that you can use on your pancakes, waffles, and other desserts!
As for drinks, you can also use the syrup as a sweetener to add an extra oomph to ice water. If you want to make things a little bit fancier, you can even portion the syrup in an ice cube container so you can use them anytime you want a sweet drink.
