Pears and Peaches

How great to get a whole box of fruit this week! Jacquie wanted to let everyone know that the pears should be stored on your counter until they ripen completely, and since the peaches are already so juicy, you should store them in the fridge until you are ready to eat them!

Are you enjoying your fruit share? What is your favorite peach or pear recipe?

  1. For peaches, this three-ingredient gelato recipe from the LA Times food section cannot be beat. And you can use your food processor!

    3 pounds peaches, peeled and pitted
    1/4 cup sugar, or more, to taste
    1/2 cup mascarpone, crème fraîche or yogurt

    1. Cut the peaches into very small pieces. The smaller you cut them, the faster they will freeze and the finer the final texture will be. Arrange the peach pieces in a single layer on a rimmed cookie sheet and freeze solid, about 2 hours.

    2. Put the frozen peach pieces in a food processor with the sugar and grind briefly. Add the mascarpone and pulse until the mixture is smooth.

    3. Empty the food processor into a small container and freeze again, 20 to 30 minutes, before serving. If the ice cream freezes solid, simply process it briefly again before serving.
