Peaches! Peaches! Peaches! I lurve (aka love) me some peaches. Love ‘em. Too bad most of the time you find them in Norway (or really anywhere for that matter) they’re soaked in “heavy syrup”. Can I just ask you – what exactly is that heavy syrup anyway? Thick simple syrup? Probably not. And it’s certainly NOT honey either. My eating instincts (similar to Spiderman’s spidey-sense-ha ha ha, if only!) tell me it’s some a half-cocked version of something else, which was replaced by a high fructose sugar laden syrup in the 1970s. Yeah-NO! That’s just so last century and so not something to be thankful for! But have no fear – there is my way to enjoy peaches, especially in summer when you’re craving something sweet but not too sweet
I like to turn very ripe peaches into a simple peach granita and enjoy my peaches cold all summer long. Why? Well those of you in Norway know, peaches are usually sold in the can with said suspect syrup and even worse, only sold fresh for a very short period every summer in the local stores. Not such a bad thing when you think about it really – peaches are a summer fruit so at least what we get here in Norway is in season.
