When your favorite stone fruits are combined with coconut water and grass-fed gelatin, a delicious treat ensues. These sweet morsels make a beautiful addition to any celebration or for no other reason than self-indulgence.
This time of year, the vendors at farmers markets always offer a variety of stone fruits – plums, peaches, apriums, plumcots, nectarines, pluots, among others. I was able to snag a few pounds of yellow peaches, white nectarines, and donut peaches last week from my favorite vendors. With titles like apriums and pluots – they sound more like something from an astronomy textbook than edible delights but they’re delicious nonetheless.
Some of these fruits are hybrids that combine varieties of plums, apricots, and peaches. Others are more of the heirloom variety that have been careful bred to preserve the traditional genome of the fruit. But they are all sweet, juicy and delicious in it’s own way. Shaking off the heels of winter, stone fruits kindly remind us that summer is officially here regardless of the date on the calendar. And as such, recipes calling for these tender fruits are in order. Everything from grilled peaches, to fruit salads, to plum cobblers – now is the time to enjoy the intense sweetness these gems offer.
