With their fuzzy, yellow-to-red skin; juicy interior; and tangy-to-incredibly-sweet flavor, peaches have been a staple treat in this country since colonial times. And while this stone fruit requires a very specific climate to thrive, there are hundreds of cultivars across the U.S., making them available year-round. Peak season, however, is from mid-May until mid-August — which is perfect, since there’s nothing quite like indulging in a few slices of fresh peach during the hot summer months. Below are some of our favorite peach recipes from the Yankee archives that utilize the summer treat in fun and tasty ways.
