Announcing AFAM-October (A Fruit a Month) - Peach/Nectarine


This event's roundup has been posted! Thanks for everyone's overwhelming response that made this event a huge hit! I look forward to hosting more fun blog events in the future for my friends and readers.

Please Visit AFAM-Peach Roundup to see the delicious spread of Peach Recipes

######################################################

Rules:
Your recipe should contain Peach or Nectarine in any form (try using fresh fruit if possible, and I'd urge to refrain from using fruit essence if possible, as that would not be complete justice to the fruit.) As this is a vegetarian blog, I'd be grateful if you do not send in any non-vegetarian recipes.

Post the recipe on your blog in the month of October; include a brief intro about the fruit choice and the concept of your dish and please include a link to this post to complete the circle and get more readers to know about this event. Feel free to use the logo above in your post.

Email me your name,blog name, the picture and permalink of your recipe to mansibshah@gmail.com with AFAM -Peach as the subject, on or before 1st November 2007. Please include a pic of 250x250 pixels if possible.

The roundup will be announced between 5th-7th November. So make sure you send in your entries before Nov 1st. Help me make this event a success by asking your friends to send in their entries too...The More the Merrier!!

I'm so excited! I just came back from Eastern Market and I saw so many varieties of peaches that I'm sure I can find something tasty. The real challenge is doing it without a stove ...

Mansi Desai said...

I'm sorry for peaches being out of season in some places guys, really!! that's why canned peaches are allowed!:) and thanks to supermarkets, you'll get them all year round! so get cooking, no excuses!:D

Abby said...

Hi! I'll certainly try to take part - peaches are one of my fave fruits! I've never cooked with canned ones before (and fresh ones aren't in my local grocery stores anymore - I checked last week!)

I'll see what I can come up with... thanks for the invitation, and thanks for stopping by my blog, too!

Melonie said...

Chandrika said...

Mansi, good choice! I will surely partcipate! :-)

PASSIONATE BAKER....and beyond. said...

Hi Mansi...Have put my thinking cap on. Being in India, we are restricted by season to the fruit we get. Unfortunately, the peach appears strictly in the summer with the other fleshy,juicy fruit like plums,apricots etc. Hmmmmmmmmm...would love to be part of your event. Will certainly try my dear.LOL

Mallika said...

Hi Mansi - thx for letting me know about the event. Normally, I'm toooo disorganised to participate in blogging event, but I am definitely going to try this one.

Arfi Binsted said...

Aaaarrgghhh... too bad those fruits are not in season in New Zealand. We're still in Spring right now...awww... Happy hosting!

Roops said...

Thanks for inviting me to AFAM-peach event. Being almost a newbie and swamped with work, I have been totally no upto speed with events. Peach is a hard one - I surely will give it a try :)

Siri said...

The Southern Fried Vegan said...

Um...peaches, at least in the American south, have been out of season for over a month. Not that I don't love a peach. And not that I didn't hoard over 15 pounds of them into my freezer this summer. I'm just saying...

Raaga said...

Can you give me a day or two's extension? I've been swamped with work and have not been able to upload the pics from my camera.

AnuSriram said...

I would love to join this... Will be in with a recipe before nov 1st.

Shandy said...

Hello and I may be new to this blogging and entry fun. . .Yay! but I sooo have to do this one! The reason is because first, I have canned my first batch of peaches this summer and second, I have a, once secret, personal recipe that involves the delectable peach and I want to share! =D
