  • ¼ cup cream cheese

  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce

  • 3 Tbsp Pilpelchuma Seasoning

Remove from heat, drain water, and place pot and eggs under cold running water for at least 15 minutes. Remove shells, and cut eggs in half, reserving the cooked yolks. Place cooked egg white halves on a small tray.

Directions

  1. Stir the water and sugar together in a small stainless pot.  Bring to a boil, but do not stir once it is simmering.   Let simmer for 2 minutes until sugar is dissolved without stirring. Remove from heat and add Butterfly Pea Flowers. Let steep for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight.  Strain out the pea flowers after steeping.

  2. Preheat a charcoal or gas open grill to medium heat.  Quarter the washed peaches and strawberries.  Toss the peaches with the oil and grill, turning often for about 5 to 8 minutes, until slightly soft and partially cooked. Let cool to room temp. 

  3. In a medium bowl, toss the grilled peaches, strawberries, and half of the pea flower syrup. Spoon onto a serving platter or bowl, drizzle with remaining syrup, and garnish with fresh mint leaves.

  • 1 pint fresh strawberries, washed, cored

  • ¼ cup Butterfly Pea Flowers
