Victor and I belong to a local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture program) which brings us tons of fresh, ripe, local, organic produce each week. Yum! The past few weeks have provided peaches, plums and nectarines in our fruit share. One particular variety of peaches I just want to mention specifically.
Donut peaches have a less-than appealing name (at least to me, since I’m not a big fan of traditional, gummy, doughnuts), but the name is actually referring to their “squashed” round shape. The really amazing thing about these peaches is their succulent, juiciness. I would describe them as having a flowery sweet taste. It is delicate and truly delicious. So far we have gotten a few different varieties, ones that are pinkish-white, pale green, and a more traditional yellowish-orange color. The bonus is that they come away from the pit easily, making them a great snack.
