Peach and Fresh Fig Pudding
Rating (0 Rated)
“Do I dare to eat a  peach?” asked T.S. Eliot, in a poem which pondered the joys of a life lived fully. WE say YES. Though the juice may dribble down your chin and soil your shirt, the taste will be worth it. That pale, sweet, slightly tangy flesh, yielding easily to the bite, is the very essence of sunlit summer days.Peaches are stone fruit, cousins to the almond, first cultivated in China ages ago, but that doesn’t matter to you now. It is warm. The sky is full of bird song. Leaves in the trees in your backyard are softly shushing one another. Go on. Eat the peach.
