I'm still getting used to the shifted growing season out here in Northern California, but I think that these yellow peaches are still pretty darn early! Even so, the sample I tried at the farmers market this weekend was tart-sweet, very juicy, and definitely good enough to convince me to buy a few. What do you think I should do with them? I'm thinking these peaches are maybe a little too sour to eat on their own or with my usual morning bowl of yogurt. But they'd do fantastically in a dessert, especially a hot one that caramelizes the sugars in the fruit and draws out more of their sweetness. Here are a few ideas I've been mulling: • Grilled Peaches with Vanilla-Bourbon Whipped CreamRoasted Peaches with Dessert WinePeach and Thyme Polenta TartFresh Peach CrumblePeach and Biscuit Crostada What would you do with these peaches?
