peach green tea.
Now that autumn has arrived the gardens are bare and empty. The cool winds have brought in the end of summer's season. The end of fresh heirloom tomoatoes, zucchinis and corn. Peach season is behind us, and with the last batch of peaches I purchased I could tell they were past their time. Naturally, wasting food isn't much of an option so I racked my brain on how I could use these peaches. I decided to make a batch of peach green tea, a perfect drink to sip on as fall makes it way into our homes.

simmer peaches for about 7 minutes

once the water is boiling add the tea bags (I like to tie them together) and turn off the burner
