One of my favorite things to do around Labor Day in the Northeast is go peach picking. I’ll grab the nearest niece or nephew and head to Silverman Farm in Easton, CT.
One of the funner things about peach picking as that you get to tasted as you go—it’s even encouraged by the farmers. Picking a fruit from the tree and eating it right away just feels so natural. The other nice thing about sampling as you go is that you can find your favorite branches and trees—and make sure that what you’re picking is great.
Once we have filled our bags and picked over 60 peaches, it’s time to relax. Only after relaxing for a day or two can i think about cooking.
Some of the most attractive recipes for peaches I’ve seen are:
Recently my wife made the pictured peach cobbler.
I decided to pair it with Stella Artois Cidre, which I was encouraged to try by Glam Media. It’s Cidre, not cider. It tastes like a carbonated apple cider. Along with the peach cobbler, it really made me feel like I was tasting the fall. Many thanks to Stella for the experience.
