Peach Bellinis to Crumble Bars: 15 Reasons to Buy a Pound of Peaches

Recipe Roundup

All right people -- listen up! Real live summer peaches are just beginning to hit the markets. Have you eaten a ripe peach yet this July? In my opinion, the best way to eat the first sweet and tangy summer peach is all by itself, over the sink, with juice running down your wrist. If you haven't experienced that moment yet, why the delay? It would be a crime to miss the moment.

And in the off chance you need a smidge of extra motivation to enjoy the all-too-brief peach season, here are 15 more reasons to buy a pound of peaches this week -- from a whiskey peach smash, to peach and almond ice cream, to tea-spiced muffins, to gluten-free peach crisp. There's a creamy peach semifreddo, and peach and pecan crumble bars too.
