Sometimes, the most delicious things in life can be the simplest. Like a bite of a fresh, ripe peach. We picked up a few the other week at our local market, and were amazed at the amount of beautiful, sultry flavor in just one bite.
In cases like these, the simplest of preparations are the best. So instead of making a peach pie (we’ll leave that to the professionals, like my mother!), I threw together the peaches with some Greek yogurt, stirred in some honey, and sprinkled a few toasted almonds on top.
This is one of our favorite ways to enjoy the fruit of the season. It’s perfect as a snack, breakfast, or even a dessert (like these strawberries with balsamic vingear and Greek yogurt). Depending on the sweetness of the fruit, you can add a bit of honey (or balsamic vinegar for some tang) — or, just try it plain, as we did here.
And if you can, check out this DIY Greek yogurt from our friend Annie over at Annie’s Eats! Making your own Greek yogurt can help you to both reduce the cost and the waste of extra packaging. Plus, it’s a fun process, and tasty! Check it out over at Annie’s Eats.
And, check out your local market for peaches, if they’re in season in your area! Those pictured above are from the Broad Ripple Farmer’s Market.
- Peaches (local, if possible) -- or any seasonal fruit
- Greek yogurt
- Almonds (or substitute any nut)
- If desired, toast the nuts: in a dry pan over medium heat, heat the almonds, stirring occasionally, until browned – about 3 to 4 minutes (make sure to watch them constantly so they do not burn). We like to make a batch and keep them in a sealed container in the pantry.
- Cut the peaches into bite-sized pieces. If the fruit needs some sweetness, add a bit of honey.
- Place some Greek yogurt in a bowl. Stir in a bit of honey. Taste, and add more honey if desired. Top with peaches and toasted almonds.
