Whale Bento & A Donut Peach

Whale sami with cheesy baby whale and water spouts. 
Mini grape tomatoes, carrots and half of a donut peach, sliced.

I hope you all had a fabulous Labor Day weekend! It rained here (and still is) so we stayed in, did things around the house and basically relaxed. I shouldn't say "we" because "I" spent most of the time canning. I am just having too much fun with it, I can't help myself. Salsa's, pickles, garlic, jalapenos and serrano's with veg. It's just awesome and I have a nice little winter stash. 

So Saturday I had to make a run to the store for more jars and on my way home I stopped by our local produce stand for some big fresh tomatoes. It's a great little place, all fresh fruit and veggies that are grown only a few feet away. I will post more about this place later, with awesome pictures. So while there I met the owner and grower, such a sweet older gentleman.

As we were chatting about the weather I came across a sign for "donut peaches" in front of these round flat looking things. I had never heard of this before and quickly he grabbed one for me and said "you have to try it". I bit into it, my eyes went wide and I turned to him..."oh my god" I said. "I know" he said. 

I love fruit but am not really a peach person. I do not like soft fruits, I want crunch and texture. This was all of the above. Sweet, crisp and crunchy. He says that a lot of the moms buy them for their kids because they are easy to hold for little hands because of the "donut" shape and the pit is mush smaller than a normal peach. What a fabulous, delicious find on a humid, rainy day.

I wonder if the donut peaches are the same as Saturn peaches? They are the best! I tried one from Trader Joe's and about died! Later had one from Costco and it was horrible. Can't imagine what one would taste like ripe practically picked from the tree!!!!
