Fredericksburg peaches — I finally bought some good peaches!
Peaches, prosciutto, balsamic and honey. Perfect ingredients for a quick summer appetizer.
Seems like I am always late on making it out to pick whatever fruit is in season. I have missed picking blueberries for about four years in a row. I have missed raspberry picking season for years. But, I did manage to get in the blackberry patch this year and picked 12 pounds of berries.
So, when I received an email from a local farmer’s market about ordering Fredericksburg (Texas) peaches, I jumped on it knowing that if I didn’t another season would roll around and I would be complaining about the hard, tasteless peaches I would be buying at the market. I get so upset when I buy peaches at the market and they look beautiful, feel firm and ripe, only to have a mushy, mealy peach with no flavor when I cut into it later. Not so with these Fredericksburg Peaches.
