Peaches and Cream

Local peaches are on the market right now in Lancaster.  Swipe them up!  I just bought a basket two days ago that were very firm, but... today they were perfectly ripe and juicy and ready to go.  So, I cut up 4 of them into bite-size pieces and put some whipped cream on top for dessert.  My kids loved it just like that.  But then they got giddy when I took a bar of dark chocolate and grated a little over the top of each one's bowl.  It added just the right taste combination and color contrast (kids love sprinkles).  If you have too many ripe peaches at one time for you to eat on that perfectly ripe day, then just wash 'em, cut 'em up, and freeze in a ziplock bag.  They make great smoothies or later ingredients for pancake topping or peach crumble.  Here's some helpful info. from  Fresh Peaches are very low in Saturated Fat, Cholesterol and Sodium. It is also a good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Niacin and Potassium, and a very good source of Vitamin C.
Have a great night!
