(Peach, Ontario Tender Fruit

We’re about four to six weeks away before peaches (and other stone fruit such as  plums and nectarines) are in season here, but when they are, if you need another reason to gobble ’em up, check this out:

Stone fruit have bioactive compounds that potentially help battle off metabolic syndrome, says new research from Texas Agrilife Research. Metabolic syndrome is a collection of conditions that include high blood presssure, high blood sugar levels, excess belly fat and high cholesterol (which in combination can raise your risk of diabetes, stroke or heart attack).

One of my all-time favourite summer salads is Jamie Oliver’s roast peach and Parma ham salad (except I’m usually lazy and skip roasting the peaches). And now having been to Parma, Italy, it will hold an even more special place in my heart (and belly! Yummers!).
