A ripe peach 🍑 is a wonderful thing. The flesh yields gently to the touch revealing a taste that can only be described as luscious. Summertime farmers markets or local farms are some of the best places to get these fruits. Can you tell they are a favorite fruit of mine?
Summer is a also a perfect time to enjoy ripe peaches in homemade ice cream, smoothies or salads, even grilled as an accompaniment to chicken, pork, beef, or seafood. And, yes, I do eat my fair share of peaches with yogurt and granola! Peach preserves or chutney are also seasonal treats that are best enjoyed in the dead of winter with homemade buttermilk biscuits.
