Peaches at the local markets here have been quite excellent. They pile them in bins close to the doors, hitting you with a wave of that heady scent of sweet summer nectar. They look so inviting with their earthy red and orange hues, and I haven’t been able to resist bringing home a bag or two every time I walk into the store.
Peaches are perfect without any special preparation. I mostly prefer the “grab and bite” method. But it’d be a shame not to expand that repertoire with the abundance of peaches available right now! So tell us:
