What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Home Cooking: Peachy Possibilities! With Summer upon us, nothing is more refreshing than fresh peaches. And the options for devouring them are endless! At first sight, you may be tempted to sink your teeth into the juicy sweet fruit as its nectar drizzles down your chin. But if you keep your willpower in check, the benefits are rewarding.
Here are a few ideas:
* Adding fresh peaches to your favorite salsa intensifies the flavor. It’s a perfect compliment to spicy jalapeños and tomatoes.
* As you prepare nutritious oatmeal, dice part of a peach, then sprinkle it with cinnamon before preparing the cooked cereal in the microwave. It’s also a convenient shortcut to peach cobbler.
* For that afternoon pick-me-up, toss a couple of frozen peaches, bananas, and strawberries in the blender. Simply add milk, a splash of orange juice, and ice cubes. Voilà, a Smoothie.
* For the ambitious baker, see yesterday’s post for Old-Fashioned Blueberry Peach Galette a là mode! Who doesn’t love fresh peach pie with vanilla ice cream?
Whichever way you choose, enjoy this peak seasonal fruit. Before you know it, it’ll be gone.
