Peaches, the taste of summer

Peaches are my summer food obsession.  While I haven’t eaten millions of them this summer, I’ve certainly eaten dozens since they first appeared at my local market.

It’s not that I don’t love all the summer berries, but I can buy them year round.  Peaches are just for summer, so I must eat as many as I can before they are gone.

I eat them plain.  I eat them in my morning yogurt (peaches and blueberries are perfect in plain Greek yogurt).  I eat them as dessert with ginger snaps crumbled on top.  I eat them in pie and cobbler and crisp, although I think cooking them entirely unnecessary.  I put them in smoothies if they get over-ripe and mushy, but that rarely happens.  Mostly, I eat them standing over the sink, so the juice doesn’t drip on my shirt or the floor.

What is your favorite summer fruit?  Or vegetable, if you’re like that.

  1. I am right there with you. I just love peaches the most of any fruit, nectarines come in second. Now I want to go to the store and get some peaches.

  2. Freshly picked blueberries (better than those from the store) and red/black raspberries (from my own bushes)!

  3. peaches aren’t really a UK grown fruit, occasional individual trees but not farmed. So they are imported… so available all year around usually tinned. I like them when I can get them and ate dozens whilst in the US one summer. Cherries and strawberries are my favourites – I have a kilo of cherries in my fridge right now 🙂

Be extra nice and share!
