So much for having fresh good peaches for the cobbler planned for today’s family gathering. Of the six peaches I bought, NOT ONE pit came out – rather it split inside the peach and the slices had to be around the pit, almost like a mango.
Five of the six were brown or browning inside. All six were mealy tasting. They came from Shoprite, which I must say usually has good produce, so maybe it’s knowing HOW to look for a good peach from the outside. Must it always be a Georgia Peach? These say Southern Peaches, but I suppose that could mean Southern Mexico or Southern Shanghai.
I can remember as a kid my grandmother had a peach tree in her backyard and we used to grab them right off the tree and eat them like apples, the sweet juice dribbling down my hands and shirt.
Ooooh, how I long for a really good peach. Got any ideas?
