I’ll be honest; I don’t have much of a sweet tooth. Sure, I love desserts — who doesn’t? But for the most part, I seem to favor more savory foods. But the big exception to this, for me, is peach desserts. If you hand me a plate of peach cobbler or a peach pie with a tall glass of peach iced tea, you can be sure I will finish every bite and drink every drop. There’s just something so refreshing about peaches on a hot summer day that make you feel like you’re lying in a hammock in Georgia.
I remember making peach cobblers and peach tea and peach jam on toast when I was growing up. There’s so much more than just peach cobbler in Southern cooking, but peach cobbler sure is a big part of it. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it!
And it’s not just desserts either. Anything that has peaches in it, I will probably love. Personally, I’m a big fan of peach salsa. Something about the sweetness of the peaches works really well with a little spice added to it, and if you think it sounds weird, just try it, and I’m sure you’ll love it.
