RECIPE: Macerated Honey and Mint White Peaches
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.
