So I bought some peaches at the farmer’s market down by the Ferry Building on saturday. Today I discovered I had horribly mistreated them.
A few notes, in the hope that others will not repeat my mistakes:
- The lighter-colored the peach the better.
- Don’t refrigerate them unless they’re about to spoil.. it drys them out.
- They’re ripe when they give slightly when you cup one in your hand, and when they smell peachy.
I picked two solid red, firm peaches, came home, and the proceeded to put them straight in the fridge. Today I took one out (the more solid of the two), and bit into it, to find that it had mostly not ripened and tasted rather not so good. The second one, I left out for a while and it became rather soft, and so I bit into that one and it was much much better.
I shall have to try again.
