Pure Peach Puree

Ingredients

2 pounds organic yellow sweet peaches (4 large peaches)

Preparation

Wash and peel the peaches. Remove the pits. Cut the fruit into 1-inch pieces.

Steam the peach pieces for 6-8 minutes, or until soft (a sharp knife will pass easily through the pieces). Fruit that is not completely ripe will need to steam longer. Reserve the liquid from the steamer.

Transfer the steamed peach pieces to a food processor and puree until smooth. Add the reserved liquid (if necessary) in scant 1/8-cup increments until the puree reaches the desired consistency and smoothness.

*You can also try this same puree, only substitute apricots, nectarines, or plums instead of peaches.
