peaches for you

At last! Local peaches. They are late this year, but oh-so-divine. In fact, they are so fabulous they need a post all of their own.

The gorgeous Greer was over for brunch yesterday. I made a quiche and sliced up some of those peaches and a local tomato. I tossed them with fresh basil, drizzled them with Balsamic vinegar and a little olive oil, and then finished with a pinch of coarse sea salt and fresh-ground pepper. (Hint: be sure to wash some of the fuzz off before slicing, and use a firmer piece of fruit as it will hold up better when tossed). I love the combination of sweet, savory, and salty. Yum.

Doesn't this look good? Oooooh, and how about a peach in champagne! What is your favorite way to serve them up? Do tell.

i love peaches any style! They're great in a salad with thinly sliced red onion and some oil and vinegar - delicious!

Delightful - I just had some with (salty) cottage cheese. (I am now in America's Dairyland afterall) KDM

Proscuitto and arugula with balsamic dressing and warm peaches. But that's only after I've had my fill of just plain peaches!

I'm normally so boring and eat them chopped up with yogurt. But I have peaches, tomatoes, and basil, so you can guess what I'll be making very soon.

i tried to go peach picking with friends last weekend, but we went on sunday and all the peaches had been picked friday :( still bought some yummy ones! i guess the peaches will keep coming all summer though, so that's the good news.
