To Peach His Own

Since I have plenty of food from the OEFFA Male's farm this week, I didn't need to buy much at either the downtown market or Local Roots this weekend, aside from restocking on baking ingredients.

But sometimes a little splurge happens:

A new member brought these wee little peaches -- slightly larger than golf balls -- to Local Roots to sell this weekend at an utterly extravagant $2.25/quart. (Yes, I'm being facetious.) How could I resist?

So I picked up a quart yesterday and shared a couple with My Wonderful Parents -- and when I returned to Local Roots this morning, I discovered the peaches had been restocked, so I splurged on yet another quart.

I'm not sure yet if I will attempt to bake something luscious with these beauties or if I will simply eat them straight up (or with ice cream).

But I'm sure going to enjoy them!

got my first peaches at our market this week, too... only one vendor had them, and they were $5 a quart, which did feel extravagant to me, but they're oh, so delicious smushed up in a glass of icy Pinot Grigio and sparkling water. Bartles & James have nothing on me!

I don't know how we got so lucky to have such sweet and inexpensive peaches, but I am not complaining! I like your recipe -- might have to give it a try, but with Riesling. And maybe a smidgen of mint?

Am also pondering a tart... stay tuned...
