This week I made peach preserves! My friend gave me a bunch of peaches from a backyard tree, and they were underwhelming in taste. I decided to cook them down on the stove with a bit of sugar and lemon, and they are wonderful now. As you can see, I put those preserves to good use on my morning toast with burrata and mint. Absolutely stunning.
I did some baking for myself and friends as well. Brownies and tiramisu. Both were wonderful, but the tiramisu I had to whip by hand (no stand mixer). I probably won’t be doing that again.
Also, I finally used the gooseberry juice that I made from the wild Sierra gooseberries I foraged with my friends! It’s subtly sweet, and I added it to iced tea for a perfect summer beverage.
I had some fun nights our with friends for pizza, and I had ice cream as well (I didn’t get a photo of that, unfortunately). It was a great week.
