Peaches are my favorite fruit, by far. I love the fuzz, I love the juice, I love everything about them. Last night I had my first peach of the spring/summer. It was on the small side, not one of the huge ones you start seeing once summer really gets rolling. I wasn’t expecting to be blown away by the flavor this early in the season, but it was actually good! I sliced up a couple of small peaches, put each one on top of some arugula, and sprinkled the salads with goat cheese and candied pecans. I had originally intended to grill the peaches before putting them on the salads, but it was kind of late and I decided to skip that detail this time.
Stay tuned for my great-grandmother’s peach cobbler recipe. It’s a good one, but deserves the big peaches!
