A good peach tastes like summer. Imagine sinking your teeth into its succulent flesh, sweet juices running down the corners of your mouth, inhaling the incomparable aroma. When thinking of this Deep South delight, my mind always wanders to sweet pies cooling in my grandmother’s kitchen and warm cobblers melting vanilla ice cream. But the versatile peach also lends its flavor to many other dishes, pairing well with a variety of cheeses for amazing salads and adding a twist to buttermilk pancakes. Experience this fruit in a whole new light with this delicious array of sweet and savory recipes.
