Peaches are around. And they continue to be hit or miss. Really more miss than hit. So we mess with them. We cut them, we marinate them, we cook them, we puree them, we pickle them, we vacuum seal them, we freeze them, we make ice cream and ice cream toppings. Thinking about inferior ingredients forces our creative hand. The want to turn an ingredient into the potential it has is what we are after. And when we are fortunate to find the ideal fruit we will most likely mess with the other ingredients to compliment it.
