Oh, you are only able to find those semi hard ones at the grocer.

Well, don't be too concerned here is an easy way to ripen peaches for your fresh peach salsa recipes.

First

Select plump fruit with firm skin. Avoid bruised or cut fruit. Look for a creamy yellow or golden background color; a red blush does not necessarily indicate ripeness.

Second

Place peaches in a paper bag, fold it shut, and set on a counter - not in the refrigerator - out of direct sunlight. For faster ripening, add an apple or banana; they give off more ethylene gas, which speeds up the process.

Third

Check peaches daily, squeezing gently. A ripe peach is soft to the touch and has a sweet, fragrant aroma.

Finally Eat!

Stop!

You were going to make this delicious peach salsa recipe remember. You can serve this spunky salsa with tortilla chips, or as a topping for grilled pork, chicken, fish, or your favorite Mexican dishes.
