I found a secret stash of blog posts that I never published this summer. Dreaming of warm summer days already.
I could literally eat my weight in stone fruit but mostly peaches. I mean real peaches. Not peach flavored candy, seltzer, fruit cups, etc. Plain Nasty. Luckily I have living in peach heaven. They're everywhere!!!! I stopped into the Greensboro Farmers Market to see what was available. They were selling small buckets of gorgeous peaches for $8.00, score! As I was forking over my cash I saw buckets peaches for only $4.00. Apparently they were the less pretty, slightly banged up ones. They just screamed JAM! I walked away with WAY more peaches than I should have tackled but what the heck, you only live once. I peeled and chopped my way through my pile of goodies. Peaches look so pretty once they are peeled. They're glossy, golden hued and smell so good! Can I just roll around in a pool of peaches? J/K... or am I? I made some Peach Jam (a Food in Jars recipe) and some Peach soup. Before you knock it, try it. It's a cold soup, similar to gazpacho (my other favorite summer soup) It's refreshing and easy. The only sweetness in the soup is the peaches. I have paired it with steamed shrimp for an easy summer meal.
