When all the late-summer bounty starts to ripen and swell with sweetness, it can be a struggle to keep up! Peak peach season means that we've been canning peaches, freezing peaches, making peach salsa, peach cobbler--even peach lemonade, which you can try tomorrow at the market! We've been drying and freezing wild mushrooms, making tomato sauce, turning basil into pesto faster than you can say "pine nuts", and pickling whatever we can lay our hands on.
Amidst all this activity, it is important to take moments to reflect and ground. It's tempting to get caught up in the frenzy of squeezing every drop from the end of summer -- especially when we finally glimpse some nice weather -- but don't worry, it'll be back again next year. Pace yourself and take time to breathe.
Unsolicited advice aside, we are preparing a delicious meal for you tomorrow! My favorite smoky black-eyed peas, a zesty cumin-lime vinaigrette, summery grilled vegetables, and more. We've also made a plethora of delectable desserts, including a seasonally-appropriate peach-filled vanilla-cardamom cake, red currant and blueberry crumble bars, and peach-blueberry crisp.
We hope to see you tomorrow at the market!
