White Peach Puree?


Recommended Posts

I'm going to be hosting a birthday cocktail party at the end of November. I know white peaches are not in season, but thought that a Bellini would be great surprise drink for the birthday girl. Is it possible to buy white peach puree anywhere?

Haven't tried the White Peach yet, but it's on my list. Let us know how you like it, if you buy some.

Cheers.

P.S. Kerry, how did you like it?

John, I really did like the white peach. Nice clean peach flavour. Used it in centers and pates de fruit and was very happy with it.

Boiron makes a white peach puree.  I have bought it from Qzina.

I see that there is a Qzina in BC. However, I'm unsure if it's a consumer retail store or warehouse only dealing in commercial sales?

Call them and ask. The Qzina in Toronto will sell to non wholesale accounts.

Qzina will sell to non wholesale customers. This is a non retail location. Nothing pretty to look at. We have bought stuff from them in the past. The fruit line is on-line . We bought some of the fruit products as well as cocao butter and they are special ordering PCB transfers.

Call and order ahead of time and bring your Visa.. :biggrin: They will accept cash too.

If it's slower than me.

Dumber than me.

And tastes good.

It was quite a while ago (like 2 years) but I have seen Boiron purees at Meinhardt's.

Thanks everyone for your help. I was in Richmond today so I gave Qzina a call. They had it in stock so I drove down there and picked it up. It was much cheaper than I thought, at ~$11/kilo. I also found the staff very friendly which suprised me, since it's obvious they're setup for large order business sales, but they still welcomed my measily one kilo purchase.
