My parents used to buy food in bulk from roadside stalls when I was a kid because they were thrifty. Even though there were just the three of us, we bought big boxes of whatever was in season at a discount, and the task was to consume the entire box of peaches, cucumbers, tomatoes, oranges, okra, or eggplant before the contents went bad. There were times during the summer when we just ate peaches.

peaches
People occasionally ask me how to choose a nice peach. Their aroma is always the first hint. You can’t assess a peach only on its appearance. A lovely rosy-colored peach might be quite unpalatable. A peach that has been dented, uneven, or bruised can be unexpectedly tasty.

Allowing your nose to lead you is the greatest option. Their odor will be similar to their taste. A nice peach has a sweet nectar aroma.
preparing peaches for grilling
Look at the background color of a peach, not just the lovely reds and oranges, while looking at color. The peach is at its finest when the whole backdrop color, behind the red and orange tones, turns golden. It should also feel weighty and weighted, with the flesh giving to the touch. Peaches can ripen after being plucked, but they will not become sweeter. The longer they are allowed to ripen on the tree, the sweeter and more concentrated the flavor becomes, similar to apricots.
Of course, the most apparent method is to simply try one.

SALAD WITH GRILLED PEACHES AND ARUGULAS AND WHITE BALSAMIC VINAIGRETTE

Salad with toasted almonds, fresh basil, goat cheese, and a simple balsamic vinaigrette made with grilled peaches and arugula.

Ingredients

3 peaches, halved, juicy and delicious-smelling

6 ounce arugula baby (or other favorite green)

1/4 cup goat cheese crumbles or fresh tiny mozzarella balls

thinly sliced red onion (14 of a red onion)

1/4 cup slivered toasted almonds

Cut 10 basil leaves into ribbons. Purple basil is a lovely color.

Vinaigrette with White Balsamic Vinegar

2 1/2 tblsp balsamic vinaigrette ( white balsamic is nice, or use regular)
1 tblsp honey or maple syrup
4 tblsp. extra virgin olive oil
a sprinkle of salt and pepper
Instructions
Preheat the grill if you’re going to cook the peaches. (They don’t have to be grilled.)

In a small dish or jar, combine the vinaigrette ingredients.

Wash peaches under running water, rubbing the fuzz off using your fingertips ( or uses a dry towel). Half the peaches, remove the seeds, and drizzle with olive oil. Grill for 4-6 minutes, uncovered, over medium heat until grill marks appear. Turn over with a metal spatula and cook for another minute. Attempt to keep the peach intact. Peaches should be cut into wedges.

In a medium bowl, toss the greens, onions, basil leaves, slivered almonds, and goat cheese with part of the vinaigrette. There’s a chance you’ll have some left over. Sprinkle with optional nasturshim petals and top with grilled peaches.
