Peaches are the ultimate summer fruit. Not much can top the delight of biting into a ripe, juicy peach. They also pack a lot of nutrition – one medium peach contains 2 grams fiber and is a good source of vitamins A and C.
Try stepping outside the box with these sweet peach ideas:
• Finely dice peaches and add to salsa.
• Sprinkle peach halves with a little brown sugar, grill them, and top with vanilla ice cream.
• Puree peaches with a little lemon or lime juice. Pour puree into a glass and add sparkling water or lemonade.
• Add sliced peaches to salad, add some chopped toasted walnuts or pecans, and crumbled blue cheese.
