You can talk endlessly about the health benefits of peach. Pediatricians recommend including it in the diet of infants as the first complementary food. And fresh peach puree, or cooked for the winter, is eaten with pleasure by both adults and children. This fruit is so noble that any preparation from it turns out to be incredibly tasty. In cooking, peach puree is used as a fragrant filling, and peach oil is widely used in medicine.
Features of making mashed peaches for the winter
Of course, homemade food is considered healthier than store-bought food. Peach puree is no exception, which is not difficult to prepare if you know some of the principles.
The skin of peaches is velvety, tender, evenly ruddy, but it is not suitable for mashed potatoes. To make the dish homogeneous, the peel is removed, otherwise it will make the mashed potatoes rough, and the kids will refuse to eat it altogether. Also, sugar cannot be used if the dish is assigned to a child, and rolled up jars of mashed potatoes must be sterilized in boiling water or an oven.
It is important to remember! Pieces of skin, once in the baby's esophagus, will keep him away from taking fruit purees for a long time.
Selection and preparation of products
In order to end up with a quality peach dish, the fruits must be ripe, but not very soft. Peaches often look appetizing, ruddy, while the pulp can be unripe or overripe.
For harvesting for the winter, you cannot use damaged fruits with various dents, because there is no guarantee that the peach has not been chemically treated. So, having chosen dense, ripe peaches, they are thoroughly washed and then dried on paper towels. Even if the peel has to be removed, this procedure cannot be skipped.
How to prepare containers for the start of the process
Banks should be soaked in water for half an hour, then rinsed thoroughly under running water.
Attention! Do not use dishwashing detergents as they leave deposits. Soda or regular laundry soap will do better than others.
Put washed glass jars in a cold electric oven and turn on the heating to 150 degrees. Turn off after fifteen minutes, the banks will dry out and heat up during this period. At the same time, they are filled with peach puree.
Another method is water sterilization. Put a soft cloth on the bottom of the pan, put the container upside down, pour water and turn on the fire. Remove the balloon ten minutes after boiling. The lids are boiled in water for about ten minutes.
