My latest impulse (great deal) purchase was a box of a dozen peaches. They were already semi-mushy at the store but that naturally did not stop me. I grabbed the box and started fantasizing about all the recipes I'd make -- one last summer peach hurrah!
Fast forward to today -- one week later -- and those peaches are still sitting on my kitchen counter.
But this time -- unlike the avocados and the breads and the yogurts -- I refuse to let Costco win. This weekend I'm going to throw a peach party* and (for real!) make one of the following (easy?) recipes:
- Peach-basil ice cream topping. (From The Pioneer Woman) The only thing I have more of than peaches is basil. No one told me it grows like a weed -- so I planted two plants on my front porch. And now I'm swimming in the stuff.
- Earl Gray peach preserves. (From Eat Live Run) I'm not quite sure how I feel about the Earl Gray-ness of this recipe but I have all the necessary ingredients in my kitchen so I might as well try it out. (Plus Jenna's never steered me wrong before. She's legit.)
- Vanilla-roasted peaches with raspberries. (From Martha Stewart) The idea of roasting peaches with butter and vanilla just seems right to me. Could be the perfect summer to fall peach recipe.
- Peach hydration mask. (From bien-etre) Yes this is a face mask. No it's not edible (sorry boyfriend). Let's hope this plan doesn't backfire.
Which recipe do you like?
*I don't know where this peach party nonsense is coming from. I've never had, been to, or even heard of a peach party.
