15 Creative Ways To Use Canned Peaches
Peach Cobbler
Making peach cobbler with canned peaches reduces the hands-on prep time spent in the kitchen while delivering nearly the same flavor and texture to your cobbler.
Top the peaches with a box of your favorite cake mix and add cinnamon to taste. Place a few pats of butter around the dry cake mix layer, then bake to golden brown perfection.
The soft and silky texture of canned peaches makes them ideal for mixing with simple syrup to create peach syrup, which pairs especially well with whiskey-based cocktails.
Smash a couple of canned peaches in the bottom of a bowl using the back of a fork and mix them with yogurt once they’re smooth for an instant peach yogurt.
For a smoother yogurt, dump the peaches (syrup and all) into a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth, and stir 2 to 3 tablespoons into a portion of yogurt.
Making homemade peach butter is as simple as cooking down a mixture of peaches, sugar, and lemon juice until thick and spreadable. Canned peaches cut down on prep time.
Canned peaches packed in juice work best in peach butter since granulated sugar is added to the recipe. If you only have canned peaches packed in syrup, drain and rinse them well.
For a shortcut peach galette, roll out your favorite store-bought pie dough into a ¼-inch-thick circle and arrange canned peach slices evenly over top.
Leave an inch of space so the pie dough can fold over the peaches. If you're using cut peaches packed in juice, toss them with a spoonful of sugar before arranging them.
Top with a sprinkle of cinnamon for added flavor, fold the edges of the pie dough over the peach filling, and then bake until the crust is golden.
