I was walking
Sore-footed, under hot sun, hot pavements.
Was it then I bought a peach? That’s as I remember.
From a stall near Charing Cross Station.
It was the first fresh peach I had ever tasted.
I could hardly believe how delicious.
At twenty-five I was dumbfounded afresh
By my ignorance of the simplest things.
– from “Fulbright Scholars”, by Ted Hughes
Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best. I knew the moment I saw this simple, four-ingredient recipe that I’d love it. I tried it first with raspberries, and thought it was wonderful. But I couldn’t wait to try it with peaches – even though they’re not officially in season yet – and it was divine. Imagine how great it’ll be when I’m making it with perfect, locally-grown fruit!
Trust me – this is one of those recipes that is easy to overlook, but don’t do it. This dessert is sensational, and I’ll be making it for the rest of the summer.
