The peach tree took a direct hit during Hurricane Irene last year and nearly toppled over, but thankfully it survived. We staked it up and did some serious pruning and it has had a relatively productive year. Not quite as impressive as last year, but still more than we know what to do with!
I've been enjoying peaches with my yogurt (homemade of course!)... Shown here drizzled with honey and garnished with a few mint leaves from the herb garden.
We've had peach cobbler... Served with some of my homemade ice vanilla ice cream. Dinner Clubbers may recall that I have been in the past adamantly opposed to "a la mode." Well, let's just say that change is possible. I have definitely changed my tune on that preference, especially when the ice cream is this good.
I also made a batch of peach jam with some of our earliest windfalls, but I should have probably crushed the fruit a bit more as it ended up separating from the jelly part. Live and learn!
