What’s your favorite peach recipe?

In the summer, there’s nothing quite as perfect as a ripe peach eaten straight out of hand. But I find them so irresistible at farmers markets and at pick-your-own farms that I often end up with more ripe peaches than I can eat!

What’s your favorite way to use ripe peaches?

I really like this Peach and Rasberry Crisp from Ina Garten. I’ve always been more of a crisp kind of girl than a cobbler-type, so I love the topping on this luscious summer dessert.

If you’re anything like me, you have about a dozen ripe peaches sitting in your fridge begging to be eaten. What are your plans for them?  Share your favorite recipe as a comment!

    I just made a batch of peach hot sauce yesterday, and that might be my new favorite! It was perfect for using the one over-ripe peach I found in our fridge.

    Try this recipe maybe you will like it……………..

    I've already made (canned) a batch of this Zesty Peach BBQ Sauce, and I'm about to make another because it is so good!
