Peaches and Cream Three Ways These are really more suggestions than recipes. When I was young and visited my grandparents in Red Bluff, they served homegrown peaches with cream poured on top with breakfast. I had never seen such a thing and was instantly entranced. But don’t stop there, peaches have a natural affinity for anything cool and creamy. Makes 2 servings

Refrigerate the can of coconut milk overnight. Open the can, spoon off the solids and place them in a large (preferably metal) mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat until soft peaks form. Add sugar, if desired. Arrange peach slices on a plate and add the whipped cream to the top. Garnish with a sprinkle of turbinado or brown sugar.
