Peach Time

I bought local peaches today and they are wonderful. Not all peaches are created equal and you don't always know what you're getting.



But when peaches from the local orchard are ready each year, I know they will be prefect.

Tomorrow I will use part of them to make peach shortcake, a dessert I've never made. I found a recipe and it's similar to strawberry shortcake, so how can I go wrong?


I think I'll have enough peaches to also make a peach cobbler pie, a real favorite.

What's your favorite way to use fresh peaches? Ice cream, perhaps? Yes, that's quite wonderful too!

But it doesn't get much better than just peeling one and eating it unadorned.



I'm thinking that peaches may be my favorite fruit. The season for them is relatively short so I need to get started and eat as many as I can.

  2. I like peaches although I am kind of hit and miss when it comes to picking out the good ones. Wish we had a local orchard. Peach cobbler would be my first choice when it comes to eating them.

    1. Some from the large stores are AWFUL; not juicy and have a dry, mealy texture. You have your avocados and lemons there in Calif; we have our peaches in Alabama. Too bad we can't "have it all!"

  8. I was at the farmer's market last Saturday and someone there had the most beautiful peaches I'd ever seen. I didn't buy any but wish I had!
