    How about soaking them in vinegar and using them as a stain?

      Never encountered this idea before. I don't do any refinishing...... sent a last batch to a friend in S.C.-not sure what she used them for....

    My mother-in-law put a few dozen into a gallon jar filled with filtered water and put them in the frig for 48 hours. Her Peach-Pit Jelly was her all-time favorite with her children and grand-children. It was also very attractive in the jars.

    My grandma taught me to use pits and skins from the peaches by boiling them in enough water to cover, extracting the flavor and color then straining and using the juice to make jelly. Delicious, beautiful and won me a blue ribbon at county fair. waste not, want not

    When I was very little I saw a man cut peach seeds and black walnuts into thin slices then he would glue the slices together to make baskets and shelves. Aren't peach pits full of some kind of poison.

      I wouldn't consider the kernels inside to be edible - they look a little like almonds - but there's a lot of color and flavor in the pits. If the pit splits, discard the kernel inside - but otherwise just boil them whole - and simmer long enough that the juice has a nice color, and pits and skins look faded. then strain.

    Beware the sharp points some have, but they can be good counting toys for children, or as stones for yard games like hopscotch. They can also be used in lieu of money for gambling-type games, if you really have enough.

    Oddly enough, a few red hot candies (the really small ones people sometimes use to flavor hot cider). They imparted color but little flavor. Very delightful. You might do a search and see what comes up because I saw Peach Pit Jelly somewhere online recently.
