Millions of Peaches

It’s summer. You know what that means? It is time for peaches! Peaches are so good right now. I like to slice the peach in half, take out the pit and eat the peach “open-faced”. Another great way is over vanilla ice cream. Or here is yet another great way to use a peach:

Peach Salsa
2 Ripe but not mushy peaches, pitted and chopped
1 Small red bell pepper, cored, seeded and diced small
1 Small red onion, diced
¼ Cup chopped fresh parsley(leaves only)
1 Medium garlic clove, minced
¼ Cup pineapple juice (fresh is best)
6 Tablespoons lime juice(add a couple more if you really like lime)
1 Jalapeno, stemmed, seeded and minced
Fresh minced mint leaves
Salt to taste

Combine all the ingredients including the salt to taste in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate to blend flavors for at least 1 hour. I like to cook it the night before and chill it until the next day when I am planning to use it. This is great to eat as a salsa option with chips or with pork tenderloin off the grill. This makes 2-1/2 Cups.


p.s. I can't help but hum this song:

“Millions of peaches peaches for me
Millions of peaches peaches for free
Millions of peaches peaches for me
Millions of peaches peaches for free”
-Lyrics from the song “Peaches” by the group: Presidents of the United States

Mercy totally did this yesterday. Open-faced, two-handed cradling, teeth, lips, nose, smashed into the hole where the pit had been! Perhaps she will learn to be a bit more demure as she grows up but, c'mon, I think she really has the right spirit!
