Basic Peach Purée

Basic Peach Purée

This is a purée you want to stock up on during the short peach season. It's convenient to have on hand to make yogurt cake and other sweets, as well as for baby food or as a sauce for yogurt.

Ingredients: An easy to make amount

2 to 3
Lemon juice
1 teaspoon
1 cup + 50 ml (250 ml)


1. Peel the peaches, and dip them quickly in lemon water (lemon juice + 1 cup of water) and put in a pan.
2. Add about 1 cm worth of water to the pan (about 50 ml; add as little as possible). Simmer over low heat. When it comes to a boil, stir it once, cover with a lid and simmer for 5 to 6 minutes.
3. Leave to cool. When it has cooled down a bit, purée in a blender or food processor, or using a stick blender.
4. I got 550 g of purée from 2.5 large peaches. I freeze the purée and just take out as much as i need. The sweetness of peaches varies, so add sugar or honey to taste when you use it.

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to make peach purée that retains its pretty color, just like apple purée.
