Mexican Peaches

The organic peaches from Mexico are so sweet and the season is now. They rival the Georgia peaches.


Fairway has them priced at $3.99 a pound. (Second floor of Fairway, 74th and Broadway)

Choose the ones that have a dominant red patch.

Allow them to ripen at room temperature for 2 -3 days or until they smell sweet and have a slight give.

I turn them every 12 hours. Lay them flat, in a single layer.

I like to wash fruit by submerging it in a bowl of filtered water to which a dash of white vinegar has been added.

Dry and eat. You are in for a treat!

    You’re such a good teacher. Since Martha and I visited you and Alexandra — I have always washed my fruit the way you taught us that weekend!
