Ripe Sweet Peaches...
When you think of Los Angeles you would not think of peaches. But you would be wrong.. Our farmers markets are packed with tree-ripened peaches. When you smell the aroma of the peach and you soak up that flavor into your nose you know! When you head to the local farmers markets the peaches are normally picked the day prior.. Problem is that they last only a few days. Next week I am going to make my annual Fresh Yellow and White Peach Preserves. Today I headed to Glendora, CA for the annual four week sale of Fresh Peach Donuts by The Donut Man of the original Route 66. Back when I wrote my top 10 donut stores in America for USAToday, I heard from so many donut stores that wanted me to try their fried rounds. The Donut Man contacted me and I had to be honest, they have great donuts, but Peach was the best and only a few weeks out of the year. If I had put them in my top 10 and you had gone... A big disappointment in March when they didn't have the flavorful peachy peach.
Next time you are on Route 66 check it out.. But call first for the Peach or Fresh Strawberry
