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.
