Our current food obsession is peaches. When peaches are in season they are remarkably sweet, soft, and delicious. In fact, this is one fruit that I never purchase out of season, because it's always so disappointing. When it is peach season we take full advantage and find different ways to eat them almost every day. Since peaches have a firm flesh they are perfect for grilling and adding to a salad, and don't be afraid to freeze fresh peaches. Simply slice them and place in a single layer on a baking sheet, then pop the sheet in the freezer. Once the peaches are frozen, transfer them to a freezer friendly container and bring them out again to enjoy in the winter. This year I wanted take the classic combination of peaches and cream makes something special. These peaches and cream popsicles are an end of summer delight for the whole family.
6 medium peaches, peeled and pitted
1/4 cup of granulated sugar
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 tsp honey
1/4 tsp vanilla
The boiling water will loosen the peach skin, through the "x".
To make the fruit pureé pour the peach sauce into a food processor and process until smooth. Another option (the one I use) is to use a spatula to press the sauce through a fine metal sieve placed over a bowl. Pressing the sauce through the sieve will create the same smooth consistency of a food processor. We chose to keep the pulp in our sauce. Set sauce aside.
