8 Sweet-As-Peach Recipes to Make Now
Summertime just isn’t right until we get to take a big, juicy, dribbly bite of a freshly picked peach. That’s certainly a concept that Stephen and Jessica Rose, operators of The Peach Truck, understand. The Peach Truck sells and delivers gloriously sweet tree-ripened peaches from Pearson Farm in Fort Valley, Georgia. The term “Georgia peach” isn’t just made up, you know. Some of the most tender, juicy peaches hail from Georgia farms, but nonetheless, summer is the season to gorge on fresh peaches no matter where you are in the South.
