In the early 1990's Tree-Ripe Fruit started selling high quality produce direct from the growers and packers to various location in the Midwest from a climate controlled truck. Yesterday the truck was scheduled to stop in my hometown for and hour and a half.
The heat and humidity did not deter us from standing in line to purchase these luscious, mouthwatering Georgia peaches.
For 35 dollars, I brought home a half bushel of peaches. The box contained 65 freestone Georgia peaches. Also for sale were Michigan blueberries, but I'm not a fan of blueberries, so I passed on that purchase.
I will of course be sharing these with my friends and family.
Can't wait until the weather cools down so I can bake a peach pound cake, but until then I will be using this recipe with some of my peaches.
This is a recipe from the Tree-Ripe Citrus web-site:
Peaches and Cream
grilled peaches and ice cream
Coat the sliced peaches in melted butter,
and sprinkle on a generous coating of
brown sugar, with a pinch of salt
Grill over medium for about 3-4 minutes per side,
