Our Simple Peach Parfait featuring Brown Butter Granola, Roasted Pecans, and Cranberries. Despite the winter chill in Florida, a longing for fresh peaches struck me. Luckily, we had a reserve from the previous season safely stored in the freezer.

Looking for out-of-season peaches? Opt for frozen ones. These peaches are harvested, peeled, and cored at their prime, retaining their nutrients. They’re a versatile staple in our kitchen, perfect for topping oatmeal, ice cream, granola, or incorporating into smoothies and baked goods. Plus, they’re ready to use at a moment’s notice.

Layered Peach Parfait served for breakfast w brown butter granola.

Canned peaches have already been cooked, even if they have been raw packed. Although we’ve had some amazing home-canned peaches, and they certainly have their place in the kitchen. 

We adore using fresh peaches in this recipe, but when they’re not in season, frozen peaches are our top pick, especially during January. They simply require a bit of time to defrost, and since there’s no need to peel them, they’re incredibly convenient for any recipe!

How to Blanch and Peel Peaches

  • Bring a pot of water to a boil.
  • Score the bottom of each peach with a small “X” using a sharp knife.
  • Submerge the peaches in the boiling water for about 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  • Quickly transfer the peaches to a bowl of ice water using a slotted spoon.
  • Allow the peaches to cool for a few minutes.
  • Gently peel the skin starting from the scored “X.”
  • The skin should easily slide off the peach.

Our easy peach parfait is great for breakfast or a snack on the go, we paired it with our popular Brown Butter Granola. Making it the perfect sweet, salty, crunchy bite!

If you’re not yet acquainted with the wonders of Brown Butter, take a moment to discover its magic here. Its nutty, caramel-like flavor serves as a secret weapon in the kitchen, enhancing everything from sauces and baked goods to eggs, soups, fish, and beyond!
