peaches are now in season everywhere. The fuzzy exterior is sweet
to taste and melts in your mouth, while the juicy flesh tantalizes
your taste buds. Take advantage of these delicious fruits while
they are in season. Always pick "tree-ripened" peaches
for optimal flavor. Look for peaches that are sweetly perfumed
and give slightly when pressed between your palms. Dont
let skin color or size deter you from choosing the best peaches.
Often large peaches can be just as sweet and tender as the smaller
ones, and unless it is green, different skin colors just reflect
the different variety.
your recipe requires peeled peaches, simply blanch the peaches
by placing them in boiling water for 1 minute and immediately
follow by submerging them in a large bowl of ice water. The skins
will practically fall off. To remove the pit, cut along the seamline
and twist the halves in opposite directions and gently pull apart.
If the pit doesnt come out with the tip of a paring knife,
slice the remaining half and pull the pieces away. If you want
to enjoy the skin, but dont want to eat the "fuzz",
rub the fuzz off under cold running water.
beats the taste of a ripe, fresh peach, however cooking peaches
often deepens their flavor and accentuates the sweetness that
the fruit has to offer. Peaches can be baked, grilled, poached,
puréed, canned, dried and frozen.
