CSA Week 6: Marinated Peaches over Maple Yogurt

Here it is Wednesday night and I still haven't posted anything about this week's farm haul. For shame, Lady A! And this was an extremely exciting haul! We're slowly inching towards summer vegetables and we got a fantastically large fruit share this time around! While not all fresh and sweet, it was been delightful to be able to munch on fruit all week--exacty what we were hoping for when we first signed up for the share. So, without further ado, here's what we got: 4 cucumbers, 2 spring onions, 9 carrots, 5 fava beans, 2 oz. parsley, 3/4 lb. greens (swiss chard) and 1/4 lb. baby greens. As for fruit: 5 lbs (!) plums, 3 lbs peaches and 1 pint cherries. Yay!
As I sat on the kitchen floor, munching on a peach, I realized they were not quite ripe and starting dreaming about what to do with them. I've been toying with the idea of buying a bigger ice cream maker, so I was very attracted by Kelly's Peach Ice Cream (and accompanying rant) on Sass & Veracity. But dinnertime came around and I had no ice cream maker. Instead, I marinated the peaches while I prepared dinner and while we ate. Then I drizzled on some blood orange olive oil, scooped the peaches over cream top maple yogurt that I bought us as a treat last week at whole foods. Delicious.
Marinated Peaches over Maple Yogurt
Toss peaches, sugar and clementine juice in a bowl together and set aside (in the fridge if you have room) until ready to use, preferable for 2 or more hours. When ready to serve, add olive oil and mix well. Scoop yogurt into bowls and serve covvered by peaches. They're also wonderful over vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!

This sounds truly delicious and far less trouble than making ice cream! I'm laughing because I remember that rant -- it's been a while ; ) I've moved my blog, so that peach ice cream recipe and many new ones are currently at Sass & Veracity [dot] com. I just may have to make that peach ice cream again, so thanks!

Thanks so much! But now I do want to try your ice cream, just as soon as I get that new ice cream maker! And now I'm off to check out your new blog.

I follow 101cookbooks religiously. I have one of Heidi's books and recently saw her at the Ferry Building (where I knew she likes to shop). Nice to see that you know it as well.
