Not the dirty-talking pop star—the fruit! I’ve already had a few spectacular peaches from Metropolitan Market, where they take their peach business so seriously that they post daily Brix readings. Brix is a scale that measures sugar levels so you know just how sweet and ripe the current crop is—if the Brix is at 16 or higher, BUY THAT PEACH. Of course, peaches are great untainted, but don’t stop there. Slice ’em in half, throw them on the grill, and serve them with a drizzle of honey and some vanilla ice cream! Pickle them with some cinnamon and cloves! Chop them up and add them to a salad of fresh greens! Just get that peach into your mouth, ASAP. (Anywhere good fruit is sold)
