Late Summer Favorites: Peaches

This is the second part of a five-recipe series. To read part 1 of the series, click here.

I still remember the first time I ate a ripe peach. I was six years old, and my mother handed me a piece of fruit I thought was an overripe apple. I bit into the peach and juice began dripping down my chin. My mouth became subsumed with flavor. Since then, peaches have become one of my favorite fruits. I always get excited the first time in the season I see fresh peaches at my local market. During the cool nights of late summer, nothing beats being outside with friends and family enjoying fresh produce like peaches.

As much as I love fresh peaches, my favorite thing to do with peaches is to cook with them. The slight tartness and sweetness of peaches lends itself well to a variety of savory. However, nothing beats a dessert with fresh peaches. Over the summer, my favorite peach recipe to make is Crock Pot Peach Cobbler. This is a classic delicious dessert that does not heat up the house during those hot summer days.
