A Peachy Summer

A Peachy Summer

For many, nothing embodies summer better than a perfectly juicy peach. They are so sweet and lush, it’s hard to believe they are good for you too! Peaches are ripe with the antioxidants you need to feel healthy, and are bursting with potassium and fiber. When buying peaches, seek out ones that feel a bit heavy for their size. It’s a good sign if they give just a little when gently squeezed. The best peaches will have no green coloring near the stem. I favor the juicy yellow ones over the sweet white ones. For an easy way to enjoy peaches, mash one up and pour your favorite Prosecco over it for a Peach Bellini. Or opt to stick with the classic and drown your peach slices in heavy cream. Maybe it’s the best way.
