Were they flat with almost white flesh? Our greengrocer had them last week. He called them "do-nut peaches" for obvious reasons. I've had white peaches before, in France (where they call them "brugnons" IIRC) but never flat ones like these.flat like these

That is exactly them! Thanks for posting up a pic, AB.
They called them Donut at the fruit stand and I Googled that they are also known as Saturn. They reminded me of those dolls that were so popular years ago... Cabbage Patch Kids? Kind of puffy and... weird. Is this a hybrid of sorts or have they always been around?

I've only seen them the last few years and was not impressed with them. The ones I had were dry. I like the old freestone peaches so ripe that the juice runs down my arm!

The fruit juice flowing slowly, slowly, down the bronze of your body.
Sorry, lost in an Elton John moment (Amoreena). It could have been peaches

Grilled beer brats with kraut 'n' beans. And more beer to wash it down. I may be sleeping alone tonight.

On a related note, I found a new mustard I really like: Koops' Arizona Heat. Yummy stuff.

Looks yummy Steve. What are beer brats? I have a package of brats in the fridge and a new grill.

Quite simple to make, really. You put your brats in a pot with a chopped onion and pour enough beer over to cover them. Then you bring to a simmer for about 15 minutes or until they are cooked through. Once done, throw them on the grill for a few minutes to crisp up on the outside.

No recipe required, but if you want one anyway, Bobby Flay's is on the Food Network website.
