You pick up a large peach and sniff it. Mmmm, smells sweet and peachy, just like it should. Feel soft, just gives a little under your thumb. Looks absolutely perfect.
One bite, however, reveals a mealy, dry, albeit soft and sweet peach. Completely inedible in my opinion, relegated to cooked dishes or the compost (or the dog).
Today I discovered that subpar peaches, diced up in a bowl of granola with cold milk (and any other fruit you might have around) are completely and totally delicious.
