QUICK: BEFORE THEY’RE GONE for another year: Pack up the flavor and juiciness of peaches for offseason use (and while you’re prepping those peaches, turn a bowlful into an easy, elegant peach clafoutis–my favorite dessert of all):
- Farm-Fresh Peaches, Frozen to Perfection Packing a harvest of summer’s juiciest flavor for the long haul: a how-to.
- Clafoutis Batter, Universal Solvent of Fruit Desserts: Learn to make this easy batter that turns fresh, dried or frozen fruit into a dramatic dessert.
I am always eagar for the first peaches of the season to make homemade peach ice cream!!
Your posts are always so helpful!
Thanks, Sara. I am motivated by my tummy: the thought of summer garden flavors in winter!
Is there any way to keep squirrels from taking one bite from EVERY SINGLE PEACH, and tossing them to the ground? I’ve thought of a pit bull but my cats out voted me.
Valerie, when you figure that out let me know–I have the same problem with tomatoes!
It could be that the squirrels are looking for water. Ist’s been a very dry summer. Try providing a water source and see if that works.
Betsy,thanks for the kind idea but I’m afraid it’s every year. I should learn to appreciate them like my father did-in the pot!.Before anyone thinks I’m a squirrel hater, I raised a litter when their mother got hit.I’m just frustrated.
