Millions of Peaches, Peaches for Me

Peaches have been in season for quite some time, and boy, am I happy about that! After mangoes and raspberries, peaches are my favourite. A peach is so delicious and juicy! The colours are so appealing, ranging from light orange, pink to dark purple – a beautifully constructed ombré.

When I was a child I was always the unlucky one who would get a worm in their fruit. Since then I have always been cautious when eating fruit. Luckily I have not found a worm staring from the fruit I have just bitten into for many years. Phew…

My husband loves fruit. Unfortunately I am a picky fruit-eater. I mainly buy the groceries in the house and I have to make sure there is a lot of fruit for my husband. The nice thing about choosing the groceries is that I also choose which fruits I buy for the house. Peaches being my 3rd favourite fruit will always be in the house when they are in season.

Stone Fruits

Peaches are classified as stone fruits. Nectarines are a variety of peaches. They are quite similar in taste, but the skins of nectarines are smooth. The skins of peaches are fuzzy. I know a few people who cannot stand peaches with fuzzy skins – they cannot even touch it! The struggle is real!
My favourite variety is peaches with white flesh.

A Clingstone or Freestone Peach?

Have you noticed that the stones of some peaches are removed easily and some not so much? The reason being is that peaches are either clingstone or freestone.  The flesh of clingstone peaches is tightly against the stones. These types of peaches will hold their shape better when they are cooked, thus these peaches are most often used for canning purposes. You will be able to remove the stone from freestone peaches much easier because the flesh does not stick to the stones that much. These peaches are easier to eat.
This cheesecake is light and fluffy. I hate a gelatinous cheesecake that almost needs a knife to cut through!

Enjoy!
