how to make peach caprese skewers with tomatoes, basil, mozzarella, and fresh seasonal peaches.

Ingredients

Why Fresh Basil?

I recommend buying a basil plant from Lowes (or any home store like that in the nursery). It’s often cheaper than pre-cut basil, and you get a lot more for your money. Plus, you can keep the plant alive and use it over and over for all Caprese recipes! I use the Planta app (free version) to keep my basil from dying.

  • Start by sliding a grape tomato onto the skewer.

  1. Repeat: Continue these steps until you’ve made as many peach skewers as you need for your party platter.
  1. Add the Finishing Touches:
  • Drizzle each skewer with balsamic glaze. I have found the bottled version to be just fine, and there are many good choices at the store.
  • Sprinkle with everything bagel seasoning. I use that a lot personally, and it’s worth picking up for this recipe.
  • Serve: Serve skewers immediately or cover and refrigerate until you’re ready to enjoy.

Tips for Finger Food Success

  • Use Fresh Ingredients: Fresh basil, ripe tomatoes, and juicy peaches make all the difference.
  • Drizzle Right Before Serving: To keep the skewers looking and tasting their best, add the balsamic glaze just before serving.
  • Experiment with Flavors: Mix it with different types of tomatoes or try a flavored balsamic glaze for an extra kick. You can also make homemade balsamic glaze reduction as long as you have balsamic vinegar on hand. Just make sure to give it time to cool, which is when it turns glaze-like.

FAQs

Can I prepare Caprese Skewers ahead of time?

Yes, you can prepare them a few hours in advance. Just keep them covered and refrigerated. Add the balsamic glaze right before serving to keep them the most fresh.

What can I use instead of mozzarella cheese balls?

If you can’t find mozzarella cheese balls, you can use fresh mozzarella cut into small cubes. Make sure they’re bite-sized to fit well on the skewers.

Can I use a different fruit instead of peaches?

Absolutely! In fact, strawberries and mozzarella are one of my favorite combos. Nectarines, or even watermelon pieces, can also be great substitutes. Whatever you choose, just use firm fruits that hold their shape well on the skewer.

Is everything bagel seasoning necessary?

No, it’s optional. However this seasoning adds a nice crunch and extra flavor, but the skewers are also delicious without it. Other choices that might work would be coarse sea salt or poppy seeds.
