It's that time of year......the peaches are ready! When I lived in Utah my sister had a peach tree, she was my main supplier. Every year she would bring me a box of peaches. I would cut them up make cobbler, freeze some for smoothies or peach daiquiris! I looked forward to it every year.
Now I have to buy them.....We have a Farmer's Market in our village twice a week. I went in search of peaches and walked away empty handed they wanted $4 for 4 peaches....I need 8-10 to make cobbler!
After a another week of sulking about the sky high peach prices I went back and found a farmer selling smaller peaches for a more reasonable price...$8.00 and 20 small to medium peaches. They were perfect and perfectly ripe....just enough for 2 peach cobblers!
Or one peach cobbler and 1 mix of peach daiquiris!
