Peaches and Basil: Summer Love

Never mind this peaches and cream nonsense! What you really want to be eating is peaches and basil. The combination may sound surprising but once you try it you’ll understand why it is one of my favourite summer treats. Fragrant and delicious. And local! (Peaches from the market, honey from Local Source and basil from the back deck.)

Take a peach and some basil (or better yet, several peaches, and lots of basil) and chop them up. Though not necessary, a drizzle of honey is a nice addition and it helps the peach juices form a bit of a syrup. This is particularly lovely when packed for a pick-nick as the bouncing around en-rout extracts more peach juice. Enjoy!
