sfprankster's (mis)adventures with Fire Roasted Peach Salsa

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Since I usually work on the weekends, I was bored at home today and made a trip to one of my local farmer's markets. The summer's bounty of fresh fruits and veggies always amaze me. A couple of weeks ago, in this thread, I mentioned a peach salsa I make every summer. I make the salsa from low acid, high sugar varieties of freestone peaches. Today, I found a white peach that fit my preferences for this salsa recipe.

 

  

 

 

 

Peel and split the peaches, then drizzle with a good quality evoo...

 

 

 

 

...sliced white onion, couple of cloves of garlic, fresh ground black pepper, salt and a drizzle of evoo...

 

 

 

 

...now I'm ready to start my trusty and dusty kettle with a chimney 1/2 full of mesquite lump...

 

 

 

 

...onions and garlic about to land in my favorite perforated pan for grilling...

 

**CAREFUL the evoo may flare if it hits the mesquite lump directly**

 

 

 

 

...caramelize the onions lightly and allow the garlic to roast in the pan, tossing often with tongs... :drool

 

  

 

 

 

...remove from the heat and set aside...

 

 

 

 

...time for peaches to receive a little kettle love... :icon_mrgreen:

 

...have to be very careful in this step, the peaches can burn very quickly... :icon_eek:  ...just a quick char and caramelization for an additional layer of flavor... 

 

  

 

 

 

...back inside to the cutting board...

 

...time to chop the caramelized onions, roasted garlic, cilantro, and peaches...

 

  

 

 

 

...and the secret ingredient...

 

 

 

 

...a little fresh ground, toasted cumin and coriander...

 

 

 

 

...add everything into a large bowl and mix...

 

...squeeze some fresh lime and some lime zest...

 

 

 

 

...wait a minimum of an hour to let the flavors marry... 

 

 

...if you can... :rolleyes:

 

 

If necessary, this recipe can be made with raw fruit and veggies to conserve time. I would recommend trying it fire roasted first. Once you do, you'll never want to make any other way! 2thumbs.gif

 

 

 

 

 

 

This how we make Fire Roasted Peach Salsa, Santa Cruz mountain style. 

 

 

 

Surgeon General's Warning:

CAUTION!!!  :eek:  This can be very addicting and difficult to stop eating until it's completely gone...

Easy to swap the peaches for mango, pineapple or whatever fruit you enjoy...
