White Peaches @ Whole Foods Means Bellini Time

peaches.jpg

White peaches from California are available at Whole Foods in Lakeview right now, which means true Bellini cocktails are just a blender spin away. The famous Italian aperitif starts with a glass of cold Prosecco (an inexpesive sparkling wine from Italy), topped with a white peach nectar puree, and garnished with a berry or perhaps a little nugget of the stone fruit and a sprig of mint. Epicurious has a recipe from the Hotel Cipriani in Venice that is both simple and classic. Best make them quick. The white peach season is notoriously short.

Oh, just wait until July (or so) and you'll find plenty of white peaches at the farmers markets. Not so unusual really.

You're absolutely right. We do get some localish (midwest) white peaches at farmers markets late in the summer. However, their season is pretty short. Only a couple of weeks at best. I just thought that folks might like a Bellini a bit early in the season. Thanks for the reminder; local fruit will usually taste even better.
