My local farmer’s market has a mailing list. Every month or so I get a cute postcard, totally small-business and local and maybe someone’s college kid helps with the graphics. Last month: “Cherries are here! Pick up your cherries!” A week or two ago: “Fresh corn! Picked just this morning!” It’s a nice way for this California girl to know what’s actually in season and try to get up early enough for the good stuff- last week the corn was GONE and I was sad and NOW what am I supposed to slather in butter and parmesan cheese? GOSH.
Instead of the corn, I wandered over to the corner fruit stand (it’s always there on that corner and it’s always fruit) where there were SAMPLES of the MOST STUNNING PEACHES EVER. Pretty, pretty peaches. White peaches! Yellow peaches! Samples of both! (Don’t ask me why those peaches didn’t get a postcard glamour shot- is there a peach conspiracy?)
Since it’s Popsicle! Week! 2016!, what could be better than putting those peaches to use in a popsicle with all the peach love: roasted peaches, sweetened with brown sugar in a creamy pop.
