Even though summer days are long and perfect for lazy, lackadaisical pursuits, they seem to maintain an ability to slip away like a secret agent/ninja/polkaroo. Before you’ve even worked in your flip flops, you’re turning the calendar pages over to August. August!?!
I’m trying my very best this year to make time to visit the farmers market, read books in the park and walk around this glorious city – while it still sparkles in the sunshine (as opposed to glittering under a blanket of snow). Luckily there are a lot of rewards that come from these priorities – freckles, fresh air and peaches.
Ontario peaches have definitely arrived. At the Brick works market this weekend, beautiful baskets full of peaches lined every other stall. I sang to myself, “peaches for me, peaches for you”, as I split a basket with Nicole and went home ready to enjoy a big juicy, garnet beauty
At the market, everyone was talking about peach pies, crisps and crumbles. Glorious! But these days, I have no time for crusts, pre-baking and waiting for a piping-hot peach to cool down. So I took all my favourite parts of a classic crumble and created a no-wait variation. Raw, simple, sweet…and ready in seconds.
If I had my little way I’d eat peaches everyday. xo
