Are you a morning person or do you like to sleep in?
I've always been an early bird! I love the quietness of morning, and in the lazy, hazy and crazy days of summer, a peaceful breakfast early in the morning is the best, and even more so on a weekend! The little ones are always up early, but weekends are the days when we really get one-on-one time and lots of important conversations can take place - along with making plans for our day.
It is so nice to be able to enjoy a slow cup of coffee on the deck - or wait, should we make that a Peach Mimosa? The peaches are absolute perfection right now - sweet, juicy and perfectly ripe. But almost better than a fresh Peach Mimosa is this Raspberry Peach Champagne Jam - absolute perfection on a buttery croissant or warm toast.
A quick trip to the farmer's market down the road to pick up a crate of perfectly ripe peaches, bursting with color and flavor, and we are ready to go!
Of course, this would be the perfect time to open up that bottle of champagne and make a fresh Peach Mimosa to sip on while you cook - you won't be needing the whole bottle for this jam!
This recipe isn't fancy at all - once you have peeled your peaches and removed the stones, you can either chop them up in a blender or food processor (if you want a smooth consistency) or cut them up into small pieces or simply smash them with your fingers if you like a chunkier jam.
Perfect for slathering on croissants or warm buttered toast - hope that you enjoy this as much as we do!
