Peach Salsa

                        Makes about 4 cups
This versatile salsa is equally delicious made with fresh nectarines.
You'll need a 4- to 5-inch-long piece of ginger (about 1 inch thick) to get 2 Tbsp. of grated ginger.

1                   large sweet onion, chopped
1                   jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
1/4                cup sugar
2                   tablespoons grated fresh ginger
2                   tablespoons olive oil
6                   large firm peaches, peeled and chopped
1/4                cup fresh lemon juice
1/4                teaspoon salt
2                   tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Sauté first 4 ingredients in hot oil in a large skillet over medium heat 5 minutes or until onion is tender. Stir in peaches and remaining ingredients, and cook, stirring gently, 5 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 2 days.

  1. Dear Nee, This recipe is so different. I have never had or seen anything like this. I love peaches or nectarines, especially when it is hot out. There is nothing like the taste of a cold piece of fruit! This maybe a great salsa to try for the summer, I love ginger and the combo of the onions, pepper, and the fruit must be a fabulous explosion of flavors in your mouth. Thanks Have a blessed day...Dottie :)

  2. Dear Dottie , Yeah , this recipe has a zip to it and just delicious . Warm weather is here and a lot of outdoor cooking and now is the time for some exciting things . Raised on a farm with lots of fresh vegetables , fruits and nuts , the possibilities are endless . Not only peaches , nectarines but plums or fruits of your choice . I will be postings some chow-chows from fresh vegetables . They are good with or without the heat . Thanks for stopping by and nave a blessed day ...Nee :)

  5. I LOVE Peach Salsa, Nee. I use to order it from a farm in Georgia many years ago. Actually, when my daughter was little she loved the stuff, lol...I should pass this recipe on to her. I bet she would love it!

    We are far from peach season here. We're expecting snow in a little while and it was 80 degrees yesterday! Thanks for sharing this recipe Nee. It sounds sooooo yummy:)

    1. Hi Louise , the weather is getting warm and time to do a little grilling . The supermarkets gets fruit and vegetables year round , I think they have it shipped in , I know your daughter would love it (I bet she may even have one) ;-D . We haven't made it to 80 degrees yet but kinda close , plenty of rain .

      I carried my herbs and peppers inside the garage just in case and guess what I found ? Hubby was hiding in a corner and said I am coming honey , looking for the rake . Give Marion a hug and a blessed Easter to you and your family . Thanks so much for stopping by :).
