Fresh Peach Daiquiri

Welcome to Stone Fruit Week!  All this week we are sharing recipes with you with our favorite stone fruits. What is a stone fruit, you ask?  Great question!  Let me give you a little lesson on stone fruits. I can't help it. It's the teacher in me.



Stone fruit is any fruit that has a pit, or "stone" in the center of it. My favorites and the highlights for the week are peaches, cheeses, and mangoes.  I wrote about peaches here yesterday, so I won't repeat much except to say that I am partial to Calhoun County, Illinois, peaches.  Each fruit has its own unique way to pit it.  I described how to pit peaches in the post above, so let's talk about cherries.

Just a little review on pitting a peach.
I pit my cherries using a metal straw. I poke the straw from the stem end, pushing down, until the stone releases. Cherries are juicy and leave a purple-red juice, so be sure to protect your countertops.  I like to use my old Silpat mat. Do you see any hint of an old Silpat? No, you don't. This is how I know to protect your countertops. 😝


To pit a mango, that's a really different process.  Find the center of the mango and run a knife horizontally around it. Remove the top part of the mango,  cut around the pit in the bottom half and slide it out.


I will tell you that this is not the traditional way to remove the pit from a mango but it sure works for me!
