My recipe of the day is for fresh peach lemonade which you can easily make at home using fresh ripe peaches and making an infusion with a traditional  made-from-scratch lemonade.

Fresh Peach Lemonade

This recipe comes from friend and fellow foodie Tiffany Byrd.

It’s crazy good and I do recommend. I am going to have to take up gardening and plant a peach tree to keep myself in peaches.

When I  select the peaches for this, I try to get the ones that really have a good blush  on the skins as it adds to the color  overall. The flesh inside doesn’t add to the color much,  but it is important to have nice ripe ones for the best  flavor.

To  get the ripe peaches, I put the ones I buy  into a paper  bag  and leave it on the counter  top. This helps the gases ripen the fruit.  Whatever you do, don’t go plopping them into the fridge before they are ripe. And if possible, avoid refrigerating them at all.

I  don’t like buying market peaches that  feel like they have been in  the cooler. I think  the cold  shuts down the  ripening process, and although most will  ripen again  at room temp, if they have been in the cooler at the market long, they could be rotting without ripening. Which is why sometimes the peach will  go from  rock  hard to rotten in  3…2…1…

To test a peach for  ripeness, smell  for aroma, and it  should have the slightest give to the fruit if you barely press. But don’t bruise  it.

Fresh Peach Lemonade

The color this pitcher got is natural. It depended on the flesh of the peaches. It got a nice gorgeous color, didn’t  it?
