Did you know…

they grow peaches in Michigan? Neither did I. But they do! At places like Fruit Acres Farm in Coloma. So my sister J and I drove up yesterday to pick peaches and shop at farmers markets and drink peach tea. It was a bit of a hike but the drive goes pretty fast when you talk about boys and online dating. Poor J… there really are some weirdos out there.

Not like us. We’re totally normal.

So we picked a ton of white and yellow fleshed peaches.  What do you do with a bunch of peaches when it’s too hot to bake?  Maybe one day soon I’ll be able to turn on my oven. People want peach cobbler. I want peach cobbler. In the mean time though, I made a batch of peach lemonade.  I fed it to my friend Liz while she talked about her fear of contracting exotic diseases.  She’s a nurse, and also totally normal.  I think she liked the lemonade.  It’s tart and summery, and so so simple.  Go juice some lemons…

Peach Lemonade

1 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice (about 4 lemons)
flesh of 2 peaches, pureed
3 cups water
1/3 – 1/2 cup sugar or sugar syrup (I used my extra rum syrup from The Cupcakes), depending on your taste and the sweetness of the peaches

Mix all your ingredients together and serve over ice. Ta Da!  Summer in a glass.

P.S. Have you watched Austin & Santino on Lifetime? Yes, Lifetime. No? Please do so. While sitting in an air-conditioned room, drinking Peach Lemonade.
