Summer's Perfect Fruit: White Peaches

Check out this excellent article on about the awesomeness that is white peaches. Here’s an excerpt:

“White peaches are low in acidity. Bite into one and you'll taste no tartness—only an aromatic, floral sweetness. A ripe white peach has an undertone of raspberries, and if it matures for a few days, the flavors deepen and it starts to taste a little like muscat grapes. Eating good white peaches is the real thing—a rare experience.”

If you haven’t already, you’ve got to get yourself some of these summer beauties before they’re gone. (Toigo Orchards’ white peaches, which I've picked up at the Dupont Farmers’ Market, have been especially luscious).
