It is approaching the end of August and the peaches are at their peak around here. I love it when the peaches are are just barely over the line ripe. I noticed that when the peaches are a just a little bit beyond the little bit beyond point, so doubly a little bit beyond, then they begin to ferment and that adds a layer of depth that is incomparable and fascinating. And then beyond that they are compost. 

After this peak period then peaches are a write off. Having them hanging around on the counter until they soften only turns them mealy. This is the one time of year that I can enjoy them. So it's peachy peach peach peach peaches until they're gone for another turn of the seasons.
