Sweet, juicy, and oh so fragrant peaches being in season is just one more reason to love summers. You may say that peaches are always available, but summer is the peak peach picking season and the best time to enjoy the delicious hand-picked fruit!
Find local organic peaches at a farmers’ market or a grocery store near you. Choose local peaches when you can, they contain less pesticide residue and just tend to be more delicious. Not to mention that trucked-in peaches are usually picked before they are fully ripe and often get damaged in transportation.
There are so many ways to enjoy this delicious fruit. Baked or poached, grilled or caramelized, sweet or savory, we have recipe ideas for every craving. Whatever meal you are planning to make using peaches, we have a recipe for you.
