In Response to Re: WHAT'S FOR DESSERT TONIGHT? : I am green with envy that you can get peaches that taste good enough to use as a topping on ice cream. I find it so difficult to find good, juicy, sweet peach tasting peaches. So often they are mealy, dry, tasteless orbs. I have taught my Grandson when picking peaches in the store to smell them. Usually if they smell like a peach they should taste like a peach. Sometimes it works sometimes not. Then I make the Peach Cake! That recipe makes bad peaches taste great.

texas has some of the best peaches in the world-------freestones---------large juicy and sweet!----we used to stop at the orchard and pick them-----when we went to my g.m.'s home to bring home to freeze and can and make preserves and jelly
now they have stands all the way down to houston at their farm mkt stands set up at gas stations ------
and they are just now getting to market
but these peaches are never found at the supermarkets-------because the ones they have are picked too soon before they get that glorious aroma
if i want peaches otherwise i buy the frozen ones like i did last week for the muffins
