An Allman Brother’s Album and also just a really good sorta summer Carpe Diem. You may have Georgia on your mind as they claim to be the “Peach State” but alas, it is our very own sunny California that is the major peach producer of the U.S. of A. And now is the time to Eat A Peach. The season is noted as June through September but I think they are really the tastiest and juiciest now. They are of course good for you: full of vitamin C, potassium, fiber, and beta-carotene (wai,t doesn’t this give you X-ray vision or something? Maybe eat 2). When choosing a good peach it should have a little give to it when you squeeze it, but still should be plenty firm. And the tell tale sign they are ready…they reeeallly smell great! Like peaches! OK, so the sweet peachy ideas are endless: cobbler, Melba, muffins, pie. But, as the thermometer begins to crank you may find your head stuck in a freezer so try these Peach Blueberry popsicles…

Peach-Blueberry Popsicles
2 cups peeled and diced peaches
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries, thawed
7 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon light corn syrup (Preferably organic)
1/2 cup cold water

Place all ingredients in a blender and puree until very liquid. Strain the mixture into a 2 cup measuring cup, pressing solids to extract all the juice. Pour the juice into popsicle molds, insert sticks and freeze overnight. Last up to a week (if you can resist that long!)
