The Versatile Canned Peach: Serving Ideas & Tips

Did you know that those cans tucked in the cupboard or chilling in the refrigerator may just be the advantage you need to help you reach your health goals? For today’s health conscious and busy lifestyles, canned peaches are an ideal choice. Here are some tips and ways that canned peaches can give you an edge when it comes to making nutritious food choices:

Canned Tips and Info

  • Canned peaches can be substituted for fresh peaches in recipes such as pies, crisps and cobblers–peaches should be drained and only half the sugar called for in the recipe used
  • Cans should be wiped off before opening to ensure that dust particles don’t get into the fruit
  • Canned fruits will keep in the unopened can for up to two years; after being opened, the canned fruit should be put in a container and refrigerated, or frozen for up to six months
  • Fruits intended for canning are harvested at their peak of ripeness, when vitamin content and flavor are at their highest, and in most cases, are canned within 24 hours of being picked, locking in valuable nutrients and fresh taste
  • California Cling Peaches account for more than 98% of the peaches used for commercial canning as they are exceptional in their ability to retain their flavor and consistency

Delicious Serving Ideas

  • Fruit kabobs are a fun way to add canned California Cling Peaches to a meal. Kids love them as an after-school snack. Simply cut peach slices into chunks and spear onto wooden skewers. Alternate with different fruits (apples, bananas, strawberries, grapes and pineapple work well), chill and serve
  • Canned California Cling Peaches can also be dressed up for dinner. Drizzle a little melted butter over peach slices and lightly broil for a perfect side dish with chicken, pork, beef, or lamb

  • Sliced, canned California Cling Peaches can be combined with greens and walnuts in a salad, along with a dressing of one cup puréed peaches, and two tablespoons each of white vinegar and oil
  • Canned California Cling Peaches are excellent with main dishes as well. Peach halves can be grilled on the barbecue for a couple of minutes on each side and served with grilled meats, or canned peaches can be puréed and used as a sauce

    I use canned California cling peaches in place of jelly/jam on my pb&j sandwiches. Makes a great quick snack and/or breakfast. I make one or two sandwiches and either eat the remaining peaches or refrigerate for later.
