TASTE | PEACHES
What better way to start the day or a new blog than with pie. I am obsessed with pie. I love to make it, bake and most definitely devour it slowly slice by slice. Warm or cold. A la mode or plain. Yum! Right now it is full on peaches and these jewels are at their finest. We have been getting outstanding cases from Tracy’s Orchard located in Greencastle Pa. This is a forth generation family owned orchard.
Peach buying tips:
To find the best peach, first take a whiff: a ripe peach should be sweetly fragrant. Next give the peach a gentle squeeze: a ripe peach won’t be too hard; it should be soft to the squeeze. Keep in mind that the color of a peach tells more about what variety it is than its maturity or ripeness. So don’t assume the best peach has a peachy color; it could be more white or greenish white than peach colored.
Come try a slice in the Canteen today for lunch. Have a wonderful day!
