Grilled Peach Salsa Recipe... 

It's time for peach crisps, peach ice cream and my new favorite - grilled peaches.
Grilling peaches is easy. Hot grill, a little oil, peaches. Cut them in half, brush on some oil and sear them till they slightly soften.
Excellent for chutneys, or as a sauce for fish or chicken, just toss with a bit of fresh ginger, some lemon juice, a dash or two of vinegar and boom.
If you're looking for a simple side to go with any grilled ingredient, try this salsa!
Ingredients: 5 large peaches, 5 tomatoes, chopped, 1 ½ jalapeno peppers, minced, ½ cup honey,
2 Tbsp fresh cilantro or cinnamon basil, chopped, Salt/pepper to taste
Instructions: Wash and remove pits of peaches. Brush oil on hot grill and cook face down for several minutes.
Flip over and grill until skin begins to darken. Remove when soft and pierced easily with a fork.
Cool, remove skins and then chop. Add tomatoes and peppers.  Stir in remaining ingredients and season to taste.
Notes: Remove seeds from peppers to regulate heat. Tomatoes can also be grilled for a more robust flavor.   
Enjoy your Summer!

WHY WE EAT ORGANIC....

Toxic Fruit...read on? Summertime is the height of fruit season. At no other time of year can you get fruit that tastes as juicy and sweet as it does right now. The only problem? Most of it has been soaked in pesticides. Fruit is notoriously difficult to grow organically and without pesticides, says Jeff Moyer, farm director at the Rodale Institute, an organic research institution. "Fruit is colorful and high in sugar content," he adds. "We all, many insects included, love sugar." Because most fruits have soft skins, the pesticides that are used to kill those bugs (and the molds and fungi that also love fruit) get into the flesh and into your mouth, and no amount of peeling or washing can remove them...this is WHY we eat OTV organic!!
