The peaches were white cling stone with amazing flavour. If only they were slip stones they could have been even better. The plums were mostly just eaten with a few stewed.
I got to work on the peaches quickly as they were very ripe. Here is a little of what was made:
|Plum and peach crumble|
|peach and almond cake|
|Homemade pasties with both dinner (roast pumpkin, caramelised onion, spinach and feta) and dessert (yeap peaches)|
|cooked which was very tasty|
|Upside down peach cake. Thankfully there have been a few birthdays this month.|
I am not so sure peaches will grow so well in Sydney but I do have a spot in the garden that might just work, and these peaches were so good I am thinking maybe. If only we didn't get such hot summers and a little more chill in winter. Something I will have to investigate a bit more I am thinking.
