We have delicious peaches, but the wait is really hard for local peaches. We have to wait until the end of August and into September.

Exactly what I was thinking. There's no such thing as a local peach where I live and we rarely get good non-local peaches. In fact, I'd say we never get good non-local peaches. We just, on rare occasion, get peaches that are a little better than the usual peaches we get.

It's kinda like wrestling a gorilla... you don't stop when you're tired, you stop when the gorilla is tired.

I wish I could bring all y'all down here. It's high peach season. I get eight softball sized ones in a bag at the Farmers Market for $5, and they're marvelous. Grown 25 miles from me.

I got some local Niagara peaches at the farmers market on Saturday - the smell is wonderful. They are fuzzier that hubby likes though. Niagara Penninsula doesn't breed the hybrids.

I mentioned up-topic that I am making a video of Bryan Ford's Choco Pan de Coco for work. In the process I noticed that the photo of the bread in the book is much lighter in color than mine, so I wrote to Ford, who said the book's got a typo in it. The book calls for double the amount of cocoa powder than it should! Oops. Of course, I had already filmed the video at that point. So at any rate, if you make this, make sure you only use 25g of cocoa powder! Here's the finished video in English:

 

The Spanish version is here, if that's your preference!

Taste? I love the coconut chocolate combo coming from a Latin American cooking background. Would you use the revised cacoa amount next time?

The doubled cocoa powder amount results in a more-bitter-than-intended loaf, so I definitely recommend using the corrected amount. I enjoyed the bread, and also like the sort of cultural expansion of my own bread repertoire: until this cookbook I had never really considered naturally-leavened "New World" breads.

I enjoy marzipan with ripe summer stone fruit as you've done.

Wanted something chocolatey, so I made a small chocolate Bundt with glaze. I usually half the recipe, and it fits perfectly in this little pan I got years ago. Since there is only two of us, a regular Bundt is way too much cake.

We were out of ice cream, but had whipped cream and strawberries. My mother complained the whole time that it was Soo dark chocolate, (ate it anyway 😑) with a dome of whipped cream that was as big as her head to help cut it.

Well, as I always do about this time of year, it's wild huckleberry season in the upper reaches of the Pacific Northwest.  Got my first batch of berries at the farmers market this morning.  These are picked in the mountains above Priest Lake, ID in the northern part of the state, just about 1 hour from my home in the Spokane area.  I buy them from a fellow who is also a wild mushroom forager, so he does pretty well.  Wild huckleberries and morels and chanterelles get a high price when they're shipped out. But as a local I was very lucky this morning as a one gallon bag was only $31, normally a gallon bag runs anywhere from $45-$60.  This is a recipe from last year for Huckleberry Shortbread Bar Cookies, blueberries are an ok substitute.  I have some new huckleberry recipes on the way this season.

 

Huckleberry Shortbread #1.jpg

 

Ingredients

Shortbread Crust-

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

2/3 cup powdered sugar

12 tbsp. melted butter

reserved shortbread dough

Huckleberry Filling-

1 cup fresh wild huckleberries substitute fresh blueberries substitute fresh blueberries

4 tbsp. melted butter

1/4 cup sugar

1 tbsp. all-purpose flour

2 tsp. cornstarch

dash nutmeg

dash cinnamon

Instructions

Pre-heat the oven to 350.  Spray a 8" x 8" square metal baking pan with non-stick spray.

In a bowl combine the flour, powdered sugar and melted butter and stir to combine until the mixture forms a soft dough ball. Take 2/3 of the dough and press it into the bottom of the baking pan. Reserve the remaining 1/3 of the shortbread dough to use as the crumb topping. 

In another bowl, combine the huckleberries, melted butter, sugar, flour cornstarch and dash of nutmeg and cinnamon. Gently toss the mixture until thoroughly combined with the huckleberries.  

Spoon the huckleberry filling on top of the shortbread crust. Crumble the reserved shortbread pastry on top of the filling and place in the oven. Bake for 45 minutes until the filling is set and the topping starts to brown. 

Remove from the oven and let cool to room temperature. Cut the shortbread into 12 squares.

I find that a good rinse and light rubbing with barely warm water does a good job of laying the fuzz.
