The perfect ripe peach is like delectable gold. Sweet, tender and juicy! Thispeach pie will make all the difference with what peaches you have in thefilling. * Variety: Peaches come in all different varieties and flavors. Their colors range from white to dark reddish-orange and all taste amazing. Many will be labeled as freestone or clingstone peaches. This refers to how the flesh sticks to the pit. Look for freestone peaches, they will come away cleanly and easily from the pit. * What to Look For: When buying or picking peaches there are a few things to look for. Look for firm peaches that give slightly under light pressure. They should be free from bruises, soft spots, and wrinkles. A ripe peach will also be fragrant. * How to Ripen Peaches: Often stores and markets will sell peaches that are slightly underripe so that they transport better and will ripen at the store or in your home. If all you can find are under-ripe peaches, pick the best ones you can find. They should still be blemish-free and peach-colored, not green. Place the peaches in a paper bag and place them on your counter till ripe. * Store: Keep all ripe peaches in the fridge till ready to use.
