Sorry, not sorry—but we can’t help saying we think things are peachy keen in August, and not just because it’s National Peach Month. Peaches are amazing. Whether we’re coming up with new peach recipes, eating them plain with the juice dripping down to our elbows, or enjoying them cut into pieces on top of our yogurt, we think this glorious stone fruit is always a treat. Alice Walker once said, “Life is better than death, I believe, if only because it is less boring, and because it has fresh peaches in it,” and we’re thinking that sums it up quite nicely.
So in honor of National Peach Month, if you’re looking for an alternative to cobbler or sangria, we’re giving you 10 unexpected ways to serve peaches—the sweetest, soft fruit of summer, like perfect last kiss for the season. Pro tip: for good measure sing the famous Steve Miller Band lyric, “I really love your peaches, wanna shake your tree.” Season officially rocked.
