This is from Paltrow and Turshen's It's All Good, and in a nut shell, it's peach juice.
Drink the day of making. It doesn't taste very good after that.
This is one song I know all the words to: "Build Me Up Buttercup" The Foundations.
- 3 cups water
- 1/2 cup honey
- 2 1/2 pounds white peaches (about 8 peaches), pits discarded, roughly chopped
- A 2 inch knob of ginger, peeled and sliced
Combine all the ingredients in a large pot set over high heat. Bring to a boil, turn off the heat, and cover the pot. Let the mixture cool to room temperature. Puree in a powerful blender in batches and pass the puree through a fine-mesh strainer or a sieve lined with cheesecloth. Discard the contents of the strainer and serve the agua fresca immediately over ice.
