My father has battled the suburban squirrels for years. They're vicous and inconsiderate! They take one of Dad's prized peaches, take one bite, throw it on the ground and move to a new one. My father finally came up with a deterrant to keep them away. So low and behold, we had peaches this year, white and yellow!
Peaches are great any which way. But I threw together a dessert where the fresh flavors of the white peaches could come through. Serve them with a good quality vanilla ice cream. You'll have a light, refreshing Summer dessert.
Macerated Honey and Mint White Peaches
3-4 cups peeled, pitted and sliced white peaches
1/8 cup chopped mint leaves
3 Tbsp. honey
1 tsp. vanilla
1 Tbsp. orange juice
1/2 cup triple sec
Zest of 1/2 a lemon
1/16 tsp. salt
Good quality vanilla ice cream
Mix the liquid ingredients first until honey is dissolved. Pour over the peaches in a large bowl. Add mint, zest and salt, toss. Cover with saran wrap and let macerate for 3 hours in the refrigerator. Serve in a small bowls with a helping of ice cream.
