I eat lots of fresh fruit; canned fruit not so much. But a hundred-year-old recipe reminded me that canned fruits are delicious. Stuffed Peach Salad was easy to make, attractive, and most importantly, tasty.
Here’s the recipe updated for modern cooks:
Stuffed Peach Salad
1 15-ounce can peach halves
Drain peaches and arrange on plate. Fill the cavity of each peach with grapes and walnuts.

That is an easy way to make them fancy.
Of all the canned fruits, peaches are my favorite.
I grew up eating peach halves with cottage cheese and a cherry, served on a lettuce leaf. I do not think I could ever eat another “stuffed peach salad” again, but my mother’s peach cobbler recipe made with canned peaches was awesome and easy. I might need to make one of those if I ever get around to wanting to cook again. 🙂
Love canned fruit and cottage cheese still – canned pear works well too, but then, more cherries, for color.
Looks good enough to eat ….but…I have never understood why canned peaches look so different than home canned peaches.
This sounds like an easy, eye-pleasing salad.
My mother often served canned fruit as dessert when I was a kid. I don’t think I could ever eat canned pears or fruit cocktail again:(
Simple, but kind of elegant.
The peach salad looks most attractive. I haven’t seen canned peach halves in a while. I mostly buy canned sliced peaches.
Many of my favorite peach orchards sell their own peach halves, and they are wonderful. I’ve begun eating them again since finding those tasty gems. As for the ones available in the store, I’ve found that buying the ones packed in water rather than syrup provides a “peachier” experience. I keep them in my hurricane prep stash.
They do look juicy!xxx
I’m not normally a fan of canned fruit either, but this actually looks good!
