Stuffed Peaches

Stuffed Peaches
New Jersey may not be the largest producer of peaches in the U.S. (we’re fourth) but when summer rolls around, peaches from the Garden State can’t be beat. When they’re in season and perfectly ripe, their fragrant juices and fleshy interior make them irresistible. It’s hard to improve on all this raw deliciousness, but give this recipe a try when you want something a little special but don’t want to work too hard to get it.
You can make it in a casserole:
Or try it on the grill if it’s too hot to turn on the oven:
It’s quick to put together, it cooks in only 15 minutes and it’s delicious. Just don’t expect to get the same results with out-of-season cotton-y peaches.
A little ice cream makes it even better.

  1. Everything tastes better with amaretti cookies stuffed inside, Linda, even a perfect peach. I've been enjoying local peaches this week, too. I will have to try your recipe; they look so good!

  2. How is it possible that I just returned from the grocer's and have everything but the peaches? Back to the car. The clerks are used to seeing me twice a day.

  3. Just got back from the Farmer's market with Jersey white peaches…they are wonderful this year and yours look amazing Linda!

  4. Tell me the Jersey peaches are improving these days because I've been disappointed with most of the peaches I buy in the farmer's markets in NY and NJ! Just had no luck.

    I think this recipe would improve ANY peach though. Great flavors. Who doesn't love peaches and almonds? The marsala just takes it over the top!

  5. Ohhh…I make this dish…but mine has chocolate in the stuffing. But it's been years since last i fired up the oven for the peaches. Thanks for reminding me.
