Our Easy Peach Parfait with Brown Butter Granola, Roasted Pecans, and Cranberries. I was having a major craving for fresh peaches in the dead of winter here (in Florida), fortunately, we had a stash in the deep freeze from this past season.
If you’re on the hunt for peaches out of season, grab a bag of frozen. Frozen peaches are picked, peeled and cored at their peak. And a frozen peach offers as many nutrients as its fresh counterpart plus it’s ready to cook at a moments notice. They’re a staple in our kitchen year-round for topping oatmeal, ice cream, granola, or adding to smoothies and baked goods too.
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. But, frozen is our preferred choice if we can’t get our hands on ripe juicy peaches in January. All they need is a bit of time to defrost,and since you don’t have to worry about peeling them they are super convenient to use in any recipe!
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!
