    Title: Prudence's Stone Fruit Gazpacho w/Scallops
    Categories: Soups, Fruits, Seafood, Vegetables, Herbs
    Yield: 4 servings

    1 lb White peaches; pitted
    1 lb Sour plums; pitted
    2 c Cubed yellow seedless
    - watermelon
    1 cl Garlic; coarsely chopped
    1 Shallot; coarse chopped
    1 tb Champagne vinegar
    1 c + 4 tb fruity olive oil
    Salt & fresh ground pepper
    4 Jumbo diver scallops
    Espelette pepper
    Few sprigs of fresh thyme
    - (w/blossoms if possible)

    Combine the peaches, plums, watermelon, garlic,
    shallots, and vinegar in the Vitamix, blender, or food
    processor. Process on high until smooth and creamy, then
    reduce the speed and drizzle in the 1 cup olive oil
    until completely incorporated. Season with salt and
    pepper and set aside to chill in the refrigerator. Go
    ahead and chill 4 glass soup bowls while you're at it.

    Set the oven @ 325°F/165°C.

    When the gazpacho is chilled, heat 2 tablespoons olive
    oil in an ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat.
    Season the scallops generously with salt and pepper.
    Once the olive oil slips easily across the pan,
    carefully place the scallops in the pan and sear until
    golden brown. I like the scallops to be just barely
    cooked, so I only sear one side. After about 2 minutes
    on the stovetop, put the whole kit and caboodle in the
    oven, without flipping the scallops; they will need 2-3
    minutes in the oven.

    Fill each chilled soup bowl with a generous portion of
    gazpacho and nestle one scallop in each bowl, seared
    side up. A sprinkling of Espelette pepper and the thyme
    sprigs and blossoms and a drizzle of fruity olive oil is
    all you need.

    YIELD: Serves 4

    ... I'd buy a turnip of my very own, out in the countryside.
