Because American grocery stories sell imported fruits and vegetables from all over the world, enjoying seasonal produce has lost some of its excitement. But peaches are one fruit that is very hard to find except in the summer. I actually am thankful for that scarcity since it makes peaches so much more precious to me.
When you find a source for locally grown peaches, stock up! Don't be afraid to buy a half bushel or a whole bushel. The price is signifigantly lower than what you pay at the supermarket, and you will have plenty to share with friends and family.
A gift of fresh fruit is thoughtful of your friend's health and well being. He will love you for it. So share your peaches generously. Then use these ideas for enjoying the rest of your bushel of peaches.
