Happy Saturday! I hope everyone is enjoying this holiday weekend with family and friends. In keeping with the 4th of July weekend theme I had planned on mixing together a blueberry margarita.
But the peaches won. Every morning as I walked into my kitchen the smell of fresh peaches enveloped my senses.
The scent of fresh peaches hands down is one of the best smells of the summer season. My knees weakened as I juiced my peaches to mix with my tequila. A thick layer of salt to rim my glass and I am ready for a relaxing weekend. Enjoy!
When selecting your peaches feel for firm peach with a deep crease. The color of the peaches should begin as a blush and fade into a yellow cream color.
A ripe peach gives off a heavenly scent that is not easily forgotten. Check for bruises and knicks.
Not need to peel your peach, the peel adds to the wonderful flavor.
