7 Peachy Recipes for Summer

July 31, 2012

Last week we talked about the nitty gritty of cherries and then we fantasized about cherry-stained t-shirts. Now, we're talking peaches. We've weighed them against other stone fruits but now we're ready for more fantasizing. Although the simple pleasure of biting into a perfectly ripe peach and feeling its juice dip down your face is satisfying in and of itself, peaches can also be an inspiring ingredient, pushing home cooks to new heights. Get creative with one of these 7 peach recipes.

Those poached peaches would be divine on ice cream! I think I'll have to make those this week.

Also a couple weeks ago, the WSJ posted one of Johnny Monis's (of DC's Komi) recipe for a peach and tomato salad. I tried it out and it's an awesome use of peaches AND tomatoes! (both of which are so abundant and delicious right now). http://www.inthekitchenwithlittlebuddy.com/2012/07/peaches-and-tomato-summer-salad.html
