A friend gushes over some beautiful new variety of white peach and brings me some because she knows I like peaches. They didn't taste like much of anything, sigh. The wonders of modern agribusiness. I like old varieties not because they are chic but because they actually taste like something. I also bought three heirloom tomatoes. My own are yet green.
Is there anything better at the end of summer than eating a ripe peach with the juice running down your chin? Or a yummy tomato sandwich? Another friend asked what would go on the sandwich, bacon, lettuce, cheese ?? and was surprised when I answered - a bit of mayo, salt & pepper on homemade bread. What could be better?
