It is pretty hard to get much more Southern than peaches, and once you have your first bite of a fresh, juicy, in-season peach you will understand why we love these so much.
Grown across the South, and having pride of place in Georgia Alabama, and South Carolina, peaches are one of the most beloved stone fruits. Whether you enjoy peaches in a pie, a salad, or a cobbler, waiting for these to come in-season is almost more difficult than waiting for your favorite college football team to kick off. For super summer recipes you may love Crab Salad with Peaches and Avocados, or Sweet Peaches and Pound Cake. For a main-dish sensation you'll probably prefer Roasted Pork Belly with Late-Harvest Peaches and Arugula, or Basil-Peach Chicken Breasts.
If you want to get your grill on with peaches but prefer a vegetarian approach, try our recipe for Grilled Peaches Jezebel. Or, if you prefer your peaches a little lighter, try some Riesling Peaches: they pair perfectly with cured meats and can be spooned out over a little torn bread. However you slice these, peaches are the perfect summer fruit treat. Now, eat a peach.
