Froot 'n Shoot

Recently, my mad friend Cookiecrumb gave me and My Beloved a big bag of pears. In a household of three, one of whom is a confirmed carnivore (the ISC), this many pears presents a challenge. Especially when my own peach tree is starting to bear fruit, as well. But, in this house, we rise to a challenge!

We loved the nectarines and prosciutto we concocted a few weeks ago so we decided to try the same combo with pears and peaches.

The pears were the clear winners, their sweetness complementing perfectly the saltiness of the ham. The peaches might have been better had they been riper - I was a little impatient and picked the first two before they were truly golden. At this stage, they'd be better in a cobbler or a crisp or lightly sugared and served over waffles. But they all made a nice hors d'oeuvre - we think the combination of froot n' shoot is pretty darn tasty!

Your peaches are delicious! We each ate a peach yesterday, unadorned. Deep, local, natural flavors.
Isn't having a froot tree in your yard a hoot?

We had a bowl of sliced peaches for dessert this evening and they really are so good! As are your pears! If you want some more peaches, let me know - we have a lot!
