Peaches: To Cook or Just to Eat?

Fruit is my favourite food, without question. Dessert is probably my second, and I’m always a fan of fruit desserts.

Peaches

Fruit is my favourite food, without question. Dessert is probably my second, and I’m always a fan of fruit desserts. But at home in the summer, despite clipping piles of recipes for pies and cakes and whatnot using seasonal fruit, I usually end up just eating it all fresh (like the five-yes, five-peaches I had for a snack last night). What can I say? They were ready to eat-in my opinion, a peach is only good if you have to eat it over the sink.

I feel like this is wrong-like I should be cooking up crumbles andgalettes for dessert every night to take advantage ofthe cheap and plentiful Ontario peaches available everywhere right now.

I’m inspired by some of the recipes on our site, like Peach and Berry Cobbler (peaches and raspberries is a classic combination).

But I think what I’ll make first is a Ginger-Peach Smoothie. I’ll make it with fresh peaches instead of canned, and fresh mint from my garden, and with a bit of protein powder it’ll be a perfect post-climbing snack tonight.

What do you think? Do you like to create desserts with peaches, or are they better eaten fresh, dripping down your chin?
