Dare to eat a peach....

So as this summer is sailing away at record pace
and temps
 upon the challenge of a friend
I decided to grab the peach by the pit...
 
Said friend benevolently gifted us with a box of straight off the tree southern freestone peaches
sweet
scrumptious
even succulent
 
Then, said friend, practically challenged....dared me to make a recipe that she makes
Peaches and Crème Brulee
challenge on!
four ingredients
who doesn't love the simplicity of that?
five if you count the peaches
which were hollowed out
in preparation
for a decadent, albeit delish,
crème brulee mixture
It was cooked in a makeshift bain marie...over simmering water
until it hits 180 degrees... and coats the back of a spoon.
:: slurp::
Then filled in the hollowed out peaches....
sugar added
and flamed  for a candied sugared crust with a kitchen torch
Mine was not as pretty as hers....
 
But DAYUM.
it was delectable....and you eat the bowl!
 
recipe adapted from here
 
Get yee some peaches.
stat.

Top of my white peach broke from weight of peaches. Deer and squirrels were feasting so I had to pick them all. White peaches have a very short shelf life, so I had to get down to business fast. I ended up peeling and freezing them all for my 5 month old grand daughter, Penny Lane. She'll never know what her Nonna went through with all those peaches. That cream brulee takes the cake though.

Just read Cindy Hattersley.s post with guacamole salad and crab enchiladas. This might be the perfect dessert to dazzle. Thanks!

Better yet......I'll just bring them to Cindy's place! That'll work just dandy for me, Holly!

Freestone peaches is the key....the pit pops out, and easy to hollow....

Yum - a new way to take advantage of peach season.

Sounds good to me. I've got a bowlful sitting on my counter. It's okay to eat sweets when their in season, right? You don't gain weight or anything from then because you're enjoying them fresh and in season? Right?
