It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...

I can't see a peach without getting this song stuck in my head!

Dang. Do you ship internationally?

Georgia is more famous for its peaches, and Washington is more famous for its apples, but I've long thought my home state of Arkansas was the perfect median -- it has absolutely awesome examples of both. Enjoy your cobbler!

Eat them.

Then I would make fresh peach pies with any left over. If there were any left over.

Beat a man to confusion, more like. If we're talking about swinging the bag of peaches by hand--not launching them from a railgun or a trebuchet, or dropping them from 8,000 feet up, etc.--I don't think it's possible to beat a man to death with a bag of peaches, even if he's a willing participant in the project.

Note that this assumes a sack of peaches ripe enough to make cobbler out of; I bet you could beat a man to death with an equivalent mass of unripe peaches.



P.S. In order to write that reply, it was necessary for me to read this paper from the 2010 Journal of Agricultural Science on the physical and hydrodynamic properties of nectarine fruit. ("Terminal velocity is an important characteristics parameter in the pneumatic conveying systems and machinery design such as strippers." I'm sure there's a joke in there, but finding it will take a better man than I, or perhaps a worse one.) Unfortunately, the paper only discussed the terminal velocity of these fruits in water, not air at sea level, but I'm guessing the terminal velocity of a sack of peaches is below 200 MPH, assuming you tie the sack closed to keep the peaches from flapping out.

Besides, if you're going to go to all the effort to beat a man to death with a bag of fruit, have the sense to use peeled avocados. And an onion and some salt and some chopped cilantro.

Actually, this is yet another oddity of American English. When you make preserves, jams, jellies, and such - and do the process of putting them into glass jars (not bottles) with screw on lids, it's called canning, even though no cans are involved.

So far this summer I have made two batches of peach ice cream, with plans for at least one more. I think there is no better use for peaches.

Here's my smaller batch recipe: Beat two eggs with a half cup sugar until light and foamy, add one pint heavy whipping cream, one teaspoon vanilla, start freezing in the ice-cream maker, and then add one cup of peeled, diced, and macerated fresh, ripe peaches 5 minutes from the end. (Make sure the peaches are cold; they should macerate in the fridge for several hours. Feel free to add a tablespoon or so of sugar while they sit. Stir every couple of hours.)

I've been using the Summer Flames from Trader Joe's. After three days on the counter they are almost as good as the ones my grandfather used to get in Georgia for his ice cream recipe.
