Wow! Ct peaches are not very good, but the ones I got today from the local market from NJ were excellent. Who ever said NJ did not have much to offer was sorely mistaken! They certainly have their farms well in hand!
Super juicy, succulent, gorgeous deep red centers, ovals of heaven. I sliced some to grill and drizzle with my balsamic syrup, to go with hand churned cinnamon ice cream. Close my eyes, take me away to paradise.
Now I have a brain storm, in addition to topping all manner of pastry treats, cobbler, puff pastry tarts, parfaits, etc..I want to make fresh peach ice cream and add a chiffonade of my garden basil. Ya Think? Serve with super buttery crisp shortbread rounds. Mine of course.
I already made my vegan love a fresh salad of Asian pears, peaches & pineapple and English cucumber with red onion in a sweet Thai-chili sauce/rice wine vinaigrette. Very refreshing. With a side of homemade crispy won ton chips, and golden sesame tofu and scallion sticks, she was happy!
Think tomorrow I will tuck some fresh slices of these porn food peaches in to a corn taco with blue crab, scallion & drizzle of flax- seed honey vinaigrette, just for a snack.
