Peach MuffinsSummer is upon us with it’s rich variety of delicious fruits and vegetables.  Of all the summer fruits sweet, juicy peaches have always been one of my favorites.

And because they’re one of my favorites, I have had such a graving for some.  So even though the selection of peaches was not what I would refer to as inviting, I couldn’t help myself and bought some on my last trip to the grocery store. Impatience didn’t pay off (once again) and the peaches were just okay, lacking that sweet juiciness I love.

How to use those not so great peaches….

Since the flavor wasn’t quite sweet enough for my liking I decided to use them in a recipe.  And I had the perfect recipe in mind; sour cream peach muffins.  This recipe bakes up as a rich and moist muffin that has the consistency of a bread, such as banana nut bread or zucchini bread.

As I started putting the muffin ingredients together, I decided to do a taste test on using fresh vs canned peaches.  I cut the fresh peaches and put them in 1/2 of the batter and put canned peaches in the other half.

Peach muffins taste test….

Muffins were completed and cooled and it was now time to give them the taste test!  The only people around today to give them the test was my husband, Paul and I.   Oh well, our house, our muffins right!!  So after savoring the taste of each of the muffins, the verdict was….they tasted just the same to us.  No discernable difference between the fresh or the canned.  A tidbit of info that might come in handy should I have a serious craving for peach muffins next winter!Your family will ask for this delicious recipe for Sour Cream Peach Muffins over and over again! #peach #muffins #recipe Click To Tweet

That’s so funny. As I was reading your post, I was wondering if fresh would taste a lot better than canned. Then you answered my question! Here in Colorado, the really good fresh peaches don’t arrive for a couple of months.

I was expecting a difference too. They are sooo good, they call to me every time I walk by! Thanks for stopping by!

These muffins sound scrumptious! I thank you for doing the taste test. Being more of a nectarine afficionado, I think I will give it a try with canned peaches. Yum. Thanks for sharing! Smiles, Linda at Paper Seedlings

I have a famer’s market that sell peaches by the bucket. Some of them are not so pretty. This sounds like the perfect way to use them. Thanks for the suggestion and the canned v fresh taste test info. Really enjoyed your post.
