Palisade Peach Salsa

It is that time of year again when our fabulous Palisade peaches are once again in season.  Palisade is an agricultural mecca on our western slopes of Colorado, and that is where our Palisade peaches come from.  To me, they are some of the best peaches I have ever eaten.  My friend Janet and I usually split a case every year.  They just arrived.

These peaches are so sweet and juicy.   I just absolutely love them.  I used half of my batch for some delicious peach salsa.  I have something specific in mind that I am going to use it for later.  You will just have a to wait a bit longer to see what that will be.  🙂

My peach salsa only requires a few simple and basic ingredients.

To make 2 large jars and 1 small-medium jar of salsa I used

10 peaches, peeled and diced

2 jalapenos, diced fine

1 red onion, diced fine

1/2 cup green onions, sliced thin

3 roasted Anaheim peppers, peeled and seeded, diced fine

1/3 cup cilantro, chopped fine

 

Mix everything together well and refrigerate until ready to use.  You can use it to top bruschetta, for chicken or pork or shrimp, or in a salad, or maybe even something a bit more exotic.

I peeled the peaches just like I peeled my apples when I showed you how to peel them on my latest video YouTube Video #4 – Brussels Sprout, Apple and Bacon Salad.  Then slice them by putting the knife right into the peach to the pit and give a slight turn.  Repeat until the peach is completely sliced.

And the results …… are just peachy.

Stay safe and stay well Everyone.  ‘Til next time.

  1. The best peaches I have ever eaten came from my very own peach tree at my former house. I hated to give up that peach tree. Palisade peaches are a close second!

    I haven’t tried peach salsa before. It looks beautiful!
