Weather getting hotter? Try this amazing water!

Here in the Land of Mojo, we always talk about getting your 80 - 100 ounces of water in every single day.  Check out this wonderful new recipe from one of our partners, Whole Foods. This infused water takes on the color of the peaches as well as their sweet taste, while ginger adds warmth.

                                                      Peach-Ginger Water with Cilantro

                                                     Peach-Ginger Water with Cilantro

Ingredients: 

  • 4 peaches
  • 1 (2-inch) piece fresh ginger
  • 4 sprigs fresh cilantro

Rinse peaches and peel. Place peel in a large pitcher or bowl. Halve peaches, remove pits and add pits to the pitcher. Reserve remainder of peaches for another use.   

Rinse ginger, peel and add peel to the pitcher. Reserve remainder of ginger for another use. Rinse cilantro sprigs, remove leaves and reserve for another use. Break sprigs in half and add to the pitcher. Pour in 2 quarts water and stir.   

Cover pitcher and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, at which time the flavors will begin to come through, or overnight, when the water will be infused with flavor. Water keeps for up to 3 days or as long as peaches appear fresh (peach-infused water will change color as it sits). Add more water to continue infusing if you’d like. Strain water if desired before serving.

Note: This recipe explains how to get the "scraps" from peaches, ginger and cilantro, though in reality, we know you’ll be doing the reverse: saving the trimmings when you prepare produce for summer salads and desserts.
