Here’s a great tip for saving some money when cooking at home…buy what’s in season! This is a simple way to guarantee the freshness of your ingredients and keep a few extra dollars in your pocket.
Peaches this week at Fairway (my favorite market) are 99 cents / pound! Not only do they make a delicious snack, but you can do so many things with them. Eat them up before they are no longer in season. Here are a few suggestions:
- Slice in half, brush with olive oil and cook on grill pan (cut side down until tender). Serve them sliced on top of a salad – Check out last night’s recipe, and substitute these for the apples. Or you can drizzle with honey and top with greek yogurt for a tasty and healthy dessert.
- Cube and mix with orange juice, olive oil, jalapeno and cilantro. Use as a topping for simply grilled fish or chicken.
- Make a Peach BBQ sauce to brush over chicken. Saute 1 chopped peach and 1/4 white onion diced in 2 tbsp of melted butter. Once tender add 1 cup of water, 2 tbsp cider vinegar, dash of salt and pepper, 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce, 2 tbsp orange juice, 2 tbsp brown sugar, 1 tsp dijon mustard. Simmer for 20 minutes.
