As we wind down the last week of Palisade Peaches in Colorado, I wanted to share one of my favorite ways to enjoy a slightly unripe peach. By all means enjoy the ripe peaches straight out of the bag or box. However, if you happen to get one that is not quite juicy enough or you are hankering for a different way to enjoy them, try this recipe.
Slice peach with skin on into a microwave safe bowl. Sprinkle with cinnamon and fresh nutmeg. Heat in microwave on high for 30 seconds, just long enough to warm them and bring out the sweetness. Enjoy plain or with 1 TBSP plain yogurt or a 1/2 cup milk.

As we near the end of January, I wanted to touch on a topic that is controversial, digestive system detox. There are a lot of varying opinions out there about if, when, and how to cleanse your liver and digestive system. I have never been a fan of long term detoxifications because they are very restrictive and often harmful. Instead, I recommend one day of sipping a simple clean juice. Nurse it all day long by just sipping it, do not drink it straight down. Cheers to your health!
- 2 slices of green apple (peal included)
- 2 oz. Apple Cider Vinegar
- 8 oz. water
- pinch cinnamon
- lemon juice (optional
mix together in glass and sip all day.
Another terrific way to add flavor to your water and give it a nutritional boost is to add the following:
- 1 stick of lemongrass (could substitute 1/2 tsp of lemongrass paste)
1/2 apple with peel sliced
- 1/2 pear with peel sliced
Add all to a pitcher or large Mason Jar of fresh water. Let steep in refrigerator for 1 hour or longer, pour and enjoy.
