Check out this cute looking thing!
We can’t ignore all the peaches right now, can we?! No way–that’d be mean. And we’re nice people!
Every weekend, for the past few weeks, I’ve come home with peaches…and pluots…and apricots. But then I get all crazy and eat them while watching youtube videos for a few hours straight. It’s a private Sunday morning thing I got going on. Totally not interesting.
Finally, I smarted up and bought way too many peaches to eat so I figured I’d drink them instead.
Let’s drink some peaches!
First, there’s the whole thing about being born in Georgia. Georgia peach girl.
Second on the list, James and Giant Peach…anyone?! How amazing was that book as a kid? It always made me wanna eat peaches.
And…I really couldn’t stand Matilda’s parents. They showed up in my nightmares for years. Remember how he was a used car sales man and turned back mileage?! Bad dude, man. As a kid, I hated cheaters like that. Still do.
Anyway! Roald Dahl holds a super special place in my 9 year old heart. That’s all.
Back to drinking peaches…
There’s a puree situation that needs to happen with the peaches.
Here’s a little before:
You run the puree through a cheese cloth and combine it with the water and lime juice.
That simple. Let it get nice and cold in the fridge and serve it with ice cubes…some mint…and a few lime slices.
Refreshing, a little tart with an awesome amount of sweet.
Yields 6 servings
1/4 cup sugar, plus 2 tablespoons
1 cup lime juice (from approx 6-7 limes)
3 cups of water
Mint for garnish (optional)
Lime slices for garnish (optional)
Peel and slice the peaches and transfer to a blender. Add the sugar and blend until completely smooth.
Grab a colander or sieve and line it with a one layer of cheesecloth. Then place it over a medium or large bowl and run the peach puree through the cheese cloth to expel the pulp. You’ll definitely need the assistance of a spatula or wooden spoon to work it through–it’ll be thick!
In a small bowl (or measuring cup) juice the limes. Add the lime juice and water to the peach mixture. Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Serve with a few ice cubes, mint and a lime. Pretty!
