Friday-Food-Frenzy: Keen on Peaches

My 6-year old son just acquired a taste for peaches.  Up until now, I’m fairly certain he was freaked by their fuzzy skin.  However, with our frequent fruit purchases at the Green Thumb, our local organic farm stand, he’s warmed up to them. His peachy turning point was last week. My daughter and I were cutting all sorts of fresh summer fruits to put into our White Wine Sangria.  Thinking he was grabbing some apple chunks, he popped a pile of fruit into his mouth only to be pleasantly surprised that in fact, he had just eaten some deliciously ripe local white peaches.   Now, he can’t get enough of this “furry fruit”.

To celebrate this wonderfully flavorful summer fruit,  this week’s Friday-Food-Frenzy is all about peaches.  We’ve got two Judy recipes that are sure to make your mouth water.  One recipe is so easy and perfect for summer grilling (remember, if I can do it, anyone can). The other peach recipe has a little “zing” to it.  Plus, I had so many Ball jars laying around from my Strawberry Jam adventure that I had to put them to more good use!

Whatever your preference, neither will disappoint.

  1. Love peaches. I use them in salads and smoothies. Love peach/ginger combo. Recipes sound great but Shar- Judy would’ve probably made her own whipped cream. XO

    I love apricots, I am sure I can use your recipe with apricots.
