My favorite fruit combo is usually peaches and blueberries. I suspect the complementary colors work on some region of the brain to enhance the flavor sensations and make you think they taste even better. But this month the blueberries, which have been on sale and we've been buying a lot of, have been inferior -- maybe picked too soon, maybe just too pallid and underdone because something was wrong with the weather.
By contrast, the peaches have been wonderful, especially the white peaches we had this week and last. I could have just eaten the peach by itself but it was small and I wanted a big dish full, so I added raspberries, a combination that I don't think I've done before. And just as beautiful as peaches and blueberries.
